It wasn't too hard, all I had to do was crack the concrete and it just fell off. My pieces of driftwood were not truly dead, I didn't even think about it because when I put it in there the tank wasn't supposed to be full of water. I'm not too sad about it, it was allot of fun building it and even more fun breaking it down. Now that I know how to build a background if I decide to build another one it should be easy.

It's alright Andy. It's still a cool tank, just an empty cool tank.

I've thought about cichlids and was set on them for a while but the certain species that I want I cannot find.
