Thats a pretty tank! I like your driftwood! I am hoping this light is durable. I like that it comes with blue lights too.

Im planning on ordering a few plants here too in a bit. I bought a piece of driftwood from my LFS for super cheap, had to boil and now i am soaking it should hopefully be ready soon to put into the tank.
