Hey everyone.

I made some more Drift-Glass this weekend. I mainly did two kinds, one which is more natural looking and the other completely just cool hahah.

Lyzza, I didn't the pattern in there as I wanted to because I totally forgot to use the bigger dotted colors to create that patterns (I purchased like 5 new colors and only ended up using 3 of them, the 2 that I didn't use where the grain like ones which will add the texture. I just honestly forgot because I was so excited making all this stuff haha, I made more glass but I can these were the main Drift-Glass Pieces. I'm still working on getting the color right so next time i think I can get it more wood like for you. If you like this one than awesome too! I can totally make some more next time, i'm hoping within 2 weeks I can go back there. This is what I made so far though:

Link to website page with pictures on it. GO there to see the bigger images, they would expand the window too wide so I am posting the smaller sized ones.

New Drift-Glass Drift-Glass





I also made another pair...but I haven't gotten any good pictures yet. Honestly those pictures suck so tomorrow when I get home from work and I can relax I will take some GOOD pictures of these. I'm also going to take some in tank pictures. I want to rescape the 20 gallon with some of this stuff just to do a photo shoot to help sell/promote it.

I was also thinking of setting my tank up with it. I'm also thinking about creating a stand for one of them and selling it all ready that way. Thoughts?

The 29 gallon is doing great right now. The fish look healthy and everything but the new plants are doing great. I'm hoping with the Flourish Excel (i know about the dangers, which is why I will be switching to yeast based later) and the RootMedic capsules will help. I am quite sure the Bolivian Rams are all males, if anyone can tell by this video please comment on it...and say why. THanks!

Here is are some videos of the tank:

Thanks Chesh!

There is a fourth piece to the purple set but the color doesn't look the same so I didn't take a picture of it there. I will do so today when I set it all up.

I'm going to put the set of Gold in the 29 and the set of Purple in the 20 to take pictures. This way you will get to see what the Gold looks like against real wood.

The tank looks fantastic! The new scape is perfect, leave it ALONE!!! I love it!

Love that riccia canopy, I hope mine gets all fluffy like that - it's like a party in my tank every time I touch it, lol ;)

BTW, the plants you sent me are doing great, all of them showing new growth and such - thank you!!!

The new glass pieces look awesome!
I would put a kind of base on them, so they are connected..I think they would be easier to use!

I cant wait to see them in the tank!

I have a 4x4 pad of Riccia available for $11 shipped if you would like that. I can add some floating wisteria on there for free.

Here are the new pictures of the purple glass in the tank. The fourth piece was not included in the first picture because it looks a little different but when I put them all together it came in real nice. Four makes a better set up than three anyways.

Lyzza I agree a base would be great for it, I will start doing that so it is easier to set up. It took me two hours to get this set up together and honestly I changed the general layout three times before I could get it all to stick together. I am having second thoughts on adding stuff to the 29 right now mainly because I like that general hardscape of it. Still thinking about it, any thoughts?

I am going to take better pictures tomorrow when the tank settles because it stirred a lot up when I did this. It was hard to get a good picture with the colors. The purple comes out way more in person.
