i had to saw a chunk off the back to get it off the front glass... yeah it's a bit too big for the tank >.< it makes a nice little cave underneath though and this tank is pretty temporary, i'll be setting up something larger once i move :d

i've been checking levels daily. ph out of the faucet is around 7, and it hasn't really changed since i added the wood.

we'll see, i guess. it's only been in there for two days. i boiled it three times for half an hour each, let it cool, and put it in, and no adverse effects yet.
