Looks cool.

I don't know if you have attached your co2 tank against the wall?
If you drop the tank and it falls on the regulator, the regulator can crack, a lot of co2 escapes at the same time and your co2 tank becomes a bullet, a huge bullet of destruction! I always chain my co2 tanks against the wall, just to be safe ;)

Oh hey, thanks for the tip. Im feeling kinda dumb about that right now considering I live in a high earthquake zone.

Awesome piece of driftwood, where'd you score that? I'll be moving up in May and need to find a rooty stump piece for my future 75. I was thinking birch or aspen or something. Maybe running down to kincaid and looking for some super dry driftwood down by the shore. I was super skeptical about using ocean driftwood in a freshwater tank, but have heard its ok as long as you soak, rinse, repeat until the salt stops leaching.

Kincaid is so awesome. I play Frisbee golf there damn near every day in the summer. Upper ship creek is also a great place for driftwood.
