Im in north phoenix and in the process of cycling my first ever tank. They always say go big or go home so I'm starting with a 150g freshwater. The biggest issue im having is findind decent decorations for it. No place I've gone carries much of a selection. Anyone have a recommendation on a local place that has a good selection of decor?

I'm in north Scottsdale... my favorite LFS is AquaTouch, but I'm also into planted tanks so the decor there is either alive or natural stone and driftwood. The PetShop in Mesa has some really nice inexpensive Malaysian driftwood and stones too. I heard Aquarium Arts is a nice spot as well.

What kind of tank build are you thinking of doing (i.e. fish-only w/fake decor, planted, African cichlid, etc.)?

Since im just starting out I was going to start out with fish and fake decor. cichlids, loaches, barbs, and cory catfish Are what im concidering right now. maybe down the road try live plants. From reading diffrent forums the biggest issue I'm seeing with live plants is lighting. My tank is 30 inches tall and lighting to grow plants with water that deep get really expensive. I was thinking about driftwood since i could get some that are tall to take up space at the top of the tank so ill check out those places. Thanks.

That raises a question for me about driftwood. The driftwood that ppl use in the tanks it it ALWAYS actual driftwood? Or could it be say a branch or knurl that is off a tree? If so, does it have to be completely old a dried out? Would I have to do something to it to make it work?
I DO have a river a block or so away, so I could go scout for some, but do I need to worry about any small amounts of pollutants in the river? (There are a few homeless folks that camp out a bit upstream sometimes)
