Love the way the driftwood looks! And dont worry about it being in with a reptile. Many people on my dragon forum prefer aquarium safe driftwood for their tanks and there are no parasites or contaminates Im aware of that will effect fish. I even have driftwood sold for aquariums in my frilled dragons cage. Only thing we recomend cleaning our wood with is steaming hot water scrubs. However dont use rock from lizard keepers as we do use soap and sometimes chemicals on that.

Thank You Agent13. I am really digging it as well. I need to get a pic from the other end it shows it better. No tea water yet so maybe I got lucky.

Now to everyone who showed concern and wished me luck on "the big rock" it has to take a break. Winter time is here so its way to cold to play outside with it.

Just kidding haha willow no tea yet I think I did good. The pics didnt come out as good this time, to much window light I think. I did see the reflection but I didnt see my face I need to get a pic from the other end. It actually shows the shape better. Maybe tonight when its dark outside

thats wonderful piece you have there! no need to go buy anything for tannins. if boiled welle nough you should see minimal coloration of the water. it goes away over a couple weeks of water changes. this tank is coming together very nicely! what all do you have in there>

thnx rexpepper651. everything in my sig are the fish(for now) until the momma shrimp decides if she will have babies or not. Then my tank will only have the neons, the gouramis, and the fancy tail albino pleco. the rest are the daughters fish hahaha. I plan on removing more of the decorations or larger rocks and such after I get more live plants.

Plant wise just a couplke of java ferns and some L. repens
