My 10 Gallon Whatever You Wanna Call It Tank
 
I just Setup the Tank Last Night Before I went to Bed.
It has Dead Bamboo and a Dead Tree Branch in it.

Before: (Imagine it without the Breeder Net.)

After:
(The top of the tank is all Foggy....I dunno Why.)
(Also the water level is Low Because I havent top it off in a While.)
(water evaporates like crazy in Florida.)

How does the tree branch work in the aquarium? Will it not rot? I thought about using it but figured that it would rot. I thought that it would mess with the chemistry of the water. Did you have to do anything special to prepare it? I have some perfect tree branches in my backyard that would look great in my 75 gallon tank. I am trying to make it look natural and not have a bunch of commercial decorations.

nice, make sure the three branch doesnt contain any pesticides or chemicals similar to that, may i just ask once what type of top of water do you use?

Nice how you arranged the branches to look like roots from a tree. How did you get bamboo? The bamboo tree is native to asia, im sure it doesnt grow in florida lol, i would love some bamboo in my tank, just wondering where you bought it

Bamboo is all over the place in Virginia. It would love the climate in Florida. Surprised the state isn't carpeted in it.

And it was in a never before (pesticied) sprayed field.

Also, Bamboo is Every Where in Florida.
