I collected the rocks and wood from a local creek that are in my 17g, 2.5g and 8g tanks.

When I went up to the Wisconsin river, I found tons of awesome looking rocks. They're like the flat rocks kind of like slate. I don't know where you live, but look around a river if your looking for cool things.

Hmm I've never done this. There are some creeks and ponds near me though, and the shore isn't too far away either.

So how do u guys clean this stuff before putting them in your tanks? Do u just throw the rocks and sea shells in boiling water for a little bit?

Well I was in my backyard and I looked closely in the dirt and found land snails. I kept them in a dirt and mud and grass environment in a little terrarium. (: I liked lettin them crawl up my arm.. Afterwards I intensely scrubbed myself though (: I also had a tree frog I caught in there. (: I felt bad though so I let Him go. I let the snails go too. Lol.
