i did some drilling in the lava rock to add more cave. i used a spade head bit, which needless to say is pretty much useless now. looks like a spoon,lol.

just to give u an idea of how big the rocks are...this is a shot down the back from the right side. ur seeing the emperor intakes inline.
be about a month before i get any fish. i'll have my barbs running cycling duty and testing for chemical problems [from the last DIY backround calamity] till then. come back and see the fishies!
