Hey I just wanted to show you all the nifty piece of wood I got for my fishies! What do you think???? I'll post pics after I put it in my tank and progress pics of the tank since I'm going to be re doing it!

I hate to tell you this after scoring such a beautiful piece of DW, but DW isn't optimal for livebearer tanks since it tends to lower PH.

Try it definately, but keep an eye on the PH.

That's what I was afraid of, but I have been told that it only drops it a tiny bit. So I'm hopeful, but will be very careful! I'm going to be converting all of my fake plants to live plants and was wondering if I should do that slowly, or is it ok to do it all at once? Thanks!

Converting to live plants can be at your own preference, but you definitely don't have to worry about putting in too many too quickly! The more the better :)
