LOL I have a shot at a nice 125 but that is one of the things holding me back. First there is more rock, then new sand, then better lights, then, then, then, then, Oh well. One of these days.

I'm seriously debating taking a trip to the island and getting some limestone that's left over from the wall projects near the bridge. Then I'll let it sit in my tub for a month with a power head. Lol. Think it would work???
