Perfect. How about a nice piece of branching driftwood? You know make it so it come outta the tank. Look at my album the recent one of my 75g

I think one piece would look really nice and give it height since its a tall tank. What do you think?

Just to clarify. A thin piece but long and branchy.

I'd do what convict suggests! Look at his tank it's my favorite on here! High five convict! Maybe JUST MAYBE my friends at work today asked me for an update on mine and I said its going ok but look at this one and showed them yours! Kudos! Not trying to be a dorky fanboy but you did yours right! My wife is so against drift wood but I wanna incorporate it.

Stock is pretty close to being done. I want a few of the more rare plecos and I would love to get my hands on a few more neambi. The one I managed to get I practically had to get down on one knee and beg for.
