Thanks! I love my stick ;) It's a Manzanita branch, I had my LFS order it for me, but I've since gotten other pieces for other tanks online. Beautiful hardwood, nice and rooty looking :) I love my black sand, I do, but yeah - EVERYTHING shows up against it, and it's hard to keep clean. With gravel, poo sinks into the substrate, not with sand, plus tan on top of black *GAH!* Still, it's been good for me (beginner) to be able to see where my filtration is lacking - it tends to collect in one area of the tank. There are enough plants to kind of 'hide' the yuck between water changes, and things will be MUCH easier once the super-pooper Mollies are out of that tank :)

where did ya get the huge beautiful stick ? That black sand looks amazing with all your green plants ! How does poops look against the black sand ? Are they real noticeable ? :-)

Holy crap, I'm jealous.
From Chesh on 06/22/12
Thanks! This is *technically* my first tank, and I'm REALLY proud of it, and in love with all the creatures who live here!
From bakecw001 on 06/22/12
This is awesome man! The tank has really cool color contrast!
From Chesh on 06/20/12
I really love snails, too. But my water is too soft for them, so I won't be getting anymore. Maybe when I finally get my hard water tank set up for the Molly family!
From Termato on 06/20/12
Godly Snails! Love em. :D
From Chesh on 06/20/12
I actually have, but I'm lovin' the *smidge* of color that the red/orange is adding. I think it'll look great when/if my Tiger Lotus grows in. The PCS are doing GREAT, runners EVERYWHERE! I'll keep you in mind - as soon as I get enough to fill in the other tanks as I want them, I'll send you some over. Promise! :)
From Termato on 06/04/12
Hey Ches, have you ever thought about a blueish tint rock for this tank? btw, how are the Pigmy Chain Swords growing? I really wanted some of those. If ever have extra!!! hahah
