The pieces of DW i purchased were malaysian DW and the were "prepped" by the dealer. I put them in my tank and in about 4 days it turned a nice yellow color. Now I dont mind it and my fish love it. But I wasnt expecting it. Tank looks fantastic cant wait to see the next progression!

That driftwood looks great, so does the whole aquarium. It's going to be a perfect home.

so i ran to home depot and grabbed some big chunks of flagstone.....yellow colored rocks, and the lfs to grab some smooth river type rocks. the flagstones are about a square foot apiece so you can imagine how big the center "hut" is.
i tried hiding one of the eel pipes that come out of the sand with this funky rock with the holes. i dont know if im going to keep it like that or not. just kind of experimenting.

Other than the eel what do you plan on stocking this tank with? You could easily stack some Texas Holey Rock to hide the PVC.

i may get somethin else but i havent been able to research much latley, so its gonna stay like this for awhile. also, my id sharks havent eaten since ive put them in here, so that will change things if they die
