No, freshwater tank. Have an empty 40 gallon long waiting to be scaped. I originally wanted to make an Iowa Bluff style layout with Iowa rocks (limestone), but Des Moines' water is already so hard I decided against making it harder with limestone.

The other option is to go for an amazon-style tank with some nice driftwood and java moss and load it up with some tetras or angels.

Both options sound cool. The first one would work if you used fake rock, and the second one would work for sure.

Same problem with fake rock as real rock. Any idea where one can get their hands on some high-quality fake rocks that match ADA Iwagumi rocks?
