New Manzanita Stump

Finally was able to find the perfect stump for my 72G bowfront, this tank houses 6 growout Cichlasoma salvini and 14 Hyphessobrycon anisitsi.

Looks awesome!! Great find!! What do you use for lighting? Almost has that black water look, which I like.

Manzanita will leach tannins like any other wood but the great thing is for a much shorter time. The lights are T5HO Colormax and 10K bulbs.
