wanting to try something new, and because i got a new tank aswell. i did a few mistakes on the 22 long like some areas are shaded and some prevents the water flow and plant choices etc.

That's a crazy collection of some really cool driftwood.

Looking good so far.Just be aware you may get the white fluffy growth on the wood when flooded.I had to remove wood and scrub it off .

thanks for the warning bro. hopefully soaking it for a month helped lessen those.

That's awesome Jap. Didn't realize that's why you were picking through all those stones at April. Where did you get all that wood?

A few BNP or a host of Otos will take care of the white slime.

Boy that's a pretty big slope in the back. Hope it holds.
