*edit*

just did a quick search on rock decorations. Read up on some horror stories on cory cats getting stuck in the holes and what not. Will remove and replace as soon as possible, hopefully tomorrow with a smooth rock, or maybe some drift wood. Thanks for the warning 1077!
With those mentioned fish wood would be preferable for several reasons. Nice aquascape.

Yea, I decided on a second piece of drift wood. Just need to find a piece small enough. Might cut one in half if I find something that I like, but is a little too big.

After going to petsmart to look around, and seeing how they had a plant sale, I finally finished re-organizing my tank. This is it! No more changes! Lava rock is gone, has been replaced with 2 small pieces of drift wood. Added 2 more anubis plants! And it is true on what people say; once you go live plants, you can't go back. All my plastic plants are now gone gone gone! :D
