New aqua scape coming.

Picked up a bunch of new rocks today got them washed and ready to go. Ran out of time but I will update tomorrow when I get a chance to get it done. I put a couple in my juvenile tank just to make sure they were ok but I did Vinegar test washed them in hot water then soaked them for a few hours so I should be good. Click image for larger version

I have been waiting all winter to scavenge some new rocks, my buddy told me of a spot close to my house. I hit it this morning I can't wait to get them in the tank.

I was going to buy but couldn't find any open landscaping places yesterday so I went out today. I'm not exactly sure if it's allowed or not or I would have grabbed more lol. I got them from a town park by a river.

I think it turned out pretty good, I'm happy with it. Took a while to make sure it was sturdy but I think it should be good. I sunk the base stones pretty much right to the bottom of the tank.
