I can just imagine the loaches zooming around it's length and doing circles and dancing around it. I really should have taken the time to look at what else the lady had. If I ever go back I'll take some pictures because I know a few people are looking for some nice quality wood.

This piece was only 7 bucks! Most local fish stores would have wanted at least 30 or more.

Not yet. It has been soaking for over 12 hours. No tannins are coming out either. I got two holes drilled into it, and some fishing line. I'm going to tie it down and put it in today along with some rocks that passed the fizz test that I found rather cheap.

Yes lots of fun. My fish seem to be half way between "I HATE YOU" and "Woaah check the place out", my back certainly hates me...but fishing line and about 3-5 hours later and I conquered the wood. Right now the glare won't let me take any decent photographs.



That's up though.

That thing made me want to like...punch a wall. I had to weigh each end with three things to keep it down...and even then I could not get it the stay all the way down. Maybe in a few months or so the wood will decide to sink.

Also just finished putting these two clips together:
, Queen came out to explore a little.

EDIT: Wow just took fresh video. She's never come out for me like this and let me take this kind of close video. It's a really treat. Have it up ASAP.

Because I cannot edit my post:

3 mins of Queen realizing yes she can swim.

It is SO cool to see her out in the open and swimming like crazy! She looks happy. . . maybe having the branch overhead is helping her to feel more secure? It'd be awesome if she starts coming out of her shell more and being more visible. . . Go, Queen, GO!
