If you don't mind me asking, how much was the 380lb. order? I need to consider this for my 300G I am going to get this year. Thanks
I spent $2,280 total ($6.00 per pound). I know I could have done better on the Internet (around $5.00 with shipping), however, my aquarium store rep worked with me on this and he handpicked the pieces for me. Then I paid him to help me aquascape it. He had one of his partners get inside the tank and we handed him pieces.

Oh, I was impressed with his technique. He used as few pieces as possible in contact with the substrate on the bottom and this helped to create nice caves and also will allow me to keep my substrate cleaner.

Pix coming soon!

OK..if a person can get INSIDE the tank, that qualifies as big in my books!

Your not kidding! You can swim in that thing! Thanks for the info Pete. At least I know how much to look at. Definitely send some pics once you get it all set. Shoot, just send pics of the tank so we can drool. :P

Yes I probably should have my head examined - but in the long run I think all will work out good and the extra volume should make my life easier
