There is a guy here in lake Stevens redoing his yard and dug up thousands of river rocks and is giving them away. I picked up a bunch and they are all different sizes and look. Let me know if your interested. I don't know much about plants. That's why I didn't chime in. If someone will ever advise me on a different post how to fix my 70 gallon acrylic tank I was trying to decide on a planted or African cichlid tank. I love the planted look but love cichlids, which usually destroy plants.
Thats awesome good deals are always great lol not ready for rock yet

Now I have to wait for the fish store to open....Only 4 hours to go! LOL!!!!
Howd the trip to the fish store go

Okay so I replaced 1 dead Angel Fish (no idea what the problem was) but Angel fish are a type of cichlid and subject to early unexplained dying. I also returned a male 3 spot Gouramis since it was way too aggressive for my tank. I replaced him with a female...So maybe babies! I did buy another plant for the tank. An Anubis plant that I put into a hole on a piece of Driftwood I have in the tank. It's better to plant it that way, it's not recommended to plant in sub straight.

Next I'm going to check out Big Al's online store to find some plants I can't find locally.

I never have been a fan of Betta's. No disrespect, but to me they are a do nothing fish. Any time I see them they just seem to stay in one place. Can't put many other fish with them and certainly not another male. But lots of people like em. They do look cool!!

I had blood fin tetras, neon tetras, glow fish, and assorted other tetras before this tank. I brought them all to Petco, gave them to them and then picked the fish I wanted for my tank. I didn't buy them from Petco!! I had to make the choice to give up fish I really enjoyed so I could move forward with other fish and different setup.
