i know. Still cant decide! Ugh. Number 6 has been sold though so that narrows it down a little.

6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)

Okay so after getting the wife's opinion...it's between #1, #5 and a couple more that she liked. I hadnt posted them because they cost a little more, but she liked them and is cool with the price (Christmas gift!).

#1 again


#5 again


#7 19x11x12


#8 28x14x18 (would need to trim a little)


#9 35x16x16 (also trim a little)


New suggestions? Thanks everyone!

I almost bought some of this wood from the same seller for my second 29g. I wasnt sure about it though so let us know how it does in the tank! I might get some for my next tank.

I like piece 5 just because its smaller. Most of those other pieces will take up most of the space in your tank. You wont have much space for plants! (if you are planting)

Well, looking back I like piece 8 if you trimmed off the big chunk on the right, I think it would look amazing.

I like number 1 the most. May I ask were you are ordering it from? I am looking for a new piece for my 55 gallon.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Thanks jbro. Think I am leanin towards 8. I could gain a few inches by cutting off that chunky part to the right like u said, probably right up to the nub.

I think itll be a nice visual and some of it will be hidden/covered with plants.

Edit....calmwaters, these are all on manzanita-driftwood.com he has some awesome pieces.

Sidenote, my college roomate/groomsman is from and still lives in asheville.

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)
