I am looking for a specific look and thats a way i can get it. The rock at all the lfs that i have gone to here are terrible and way too expensive. Plus i want something built onto the tank. And i want it to look almost natural.

I just got this in the mail today only to relies that it is for 220 volt and its not compatible in the US.

So im talking to the seller to return it to him. If not i guess i will sell it on ebay to some one that can use it.

You want to soak them in water changing the water out every day or every other day until the water dosent change in color and the ph in the water dose not go up. Every where i read it says anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 weeks.
