In the second picture on the left side, is that the Moon Rock Cave from Wal-MArt??

...maybe......8-) The tank itself might be from Walmart, too.

It looks like it...Beware of that cave..I bought one from wal-mart because it glows in the dark, but whatever chemicals are in it that seem to seep off of it got some of my fish sick. The glowing stopped after about a week and a half, and created a huge brown algae problem, so I threw it away.. if yours doesn;t glow in the dark then it's not the cave I was thinking of :P

It did glow when I first bought it. I bought it when I first purchased the aquarium. Hold on a second. *turns off lights* It still glows! It's been about a month and a half ago and no problems so far. Thanks for the heads up, though. I remember the first night after I had purchased it. I turn off all the lights ot go to bed, and as I crawl into bed I see this glowing thing. I was like, "Holy crap!! IT GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!"

RIGHT?! That's what I thought was neat about it, plus because I had just bought i glow in the dark plant, I was like, "Let's just rave this tank out!!" But I noticed my Rainbow sharks loved to eat off of it, and it lost its luster pretty quick. After a water change/rearranging, I noticed when I put the cave back in it had this "fizzy" feel and look to it, like putting alka-seltzer in water, so I was like...hmm...that can't be safe for the fish...and it started turning disgusting. Sucks I had to get rid of it, my ARBS loved to sleep in there, totally camoflauged during the day :P
