It's 13lbs of petrified wood that I bought from an aquarium shop, I made sure to grab all the small pieces they had to compliment the larger central rocks.
Petrified wood can be problematic, but not always. It can raise TDS, and release minerals into the water. Just a heads up.

DIY 36" spray bar.

I wanted a tank length spray bar to distribute CO2/flow better throughout the tank. Bought a 36" 1/2" OD clear PVC tube and drilled 3/32" holes an inch apart. Perfect flow speed for the Rena Filstar XP3 (350 GPH)


Got the clear PVC from here: 3 dollars with free shipping! http://www.lnt.com/product/aquarium...-504991/lees-thinwall-rigid-tubing-clear.html

Comes in the most ridiculously oversized box

Great tanks and great thread.

Just an update pic. Changed a few minor things with the major being the switch from HC to e.belem as my foreground.

Just redid my 12 yesterday. Went with more nature style this time. Used a bunch of manzanita from Tom and 10-15lbs of seiryu stone. Got the plants mapped out pretty good, just gotta wait for everything to grow in. This tank will house my royal blue tiger shrimp eventually. Should be pretty baller lol.

Haha not real big on Star Wars, or props in general, going for the nature look sorry. Wish i could fast forward time to everything being grown in, or have the funds for new plants. Any one want to make a donation lol?

I put this on our sponsor thread but just wanted to let you guys know. We will be finally bringing in a Low Iron version of the 12 gallon long. We will be getting them in next month and they will go out to all our various retailers soon after that. Green Leaf and Marine Depot should be carrying them so keep an eye out.
