My husband prefers the term "Fish People."


For various and sundry reasons my plan to start hardscaping was derailed, but it is absolutely happening today. And good news - my driftwood sinks!

I heard "Fish Nerds" as well. That's okay, she doesn't understand...it's a fish thing.

Congrats! What kind of DW did you get? I don't mind moving rocks and DW around, but I hate when I put plants in certain location and two days later resist the urge to move them else where.

I have three gorgeous pieces of manzanita. I'm really quite surprised they sank so quickly. The first two days they were in the tub and I changed the water with hot every few hours. After that though, it was only three or four days. I had it in a large sterilite tub - I put some stuff on it to keep it submerged and then put the lid on and ignored it. One piece only half sinks, but it's good enough, lol.

I always rearrange stuff. That's the reason I'm going to wait a while to add fish; I figure moving stuff around will be easier if I can drain half the tank and don't have to worry about disturbing anyone. Except my husband.

Decided to move my new betta into the little 3 gallon column tank and put my bigger betta back in to his 5 gallon. I think they're both happy with the switch, the new guy is zipping around the column and having a good old time. And Sid is lounging in his plants like he does every day at this time. I feel bad I took his house to hide the plastic thing in the middle of the 3 gallon tank, so I'll probably be getting him a new one soon. Haha

I used play sand and added some white and black betta sand to it. Thanks!

Perhaps you could get several branches of manzanita DW to fill the vertical spaces of you tank.
Is there a certain website to find manzanita dw? Because that's what I'm looking for, a piece to fill the vertical spaces. And thanks!

You can try this site. I believe one of the forum members runs it:
http://www.manzanita-driftwood.com/
I heard another member mention a Bridal & Bloom site that sells it as well.
