alright, the water is much clearer now so here it is!

Edit: just as a test i put my tiny little cheapy LED bar on the tank and i was shocked to see the colors as vivid and bright as they were! I have never seen the Angel with the same elecric blue color she had. Seeing the tank with LEDs that cheap just quelled any hesitation i had about buying LEDs for this tank!

I went to the LFS to get some nice stones for my tank but just couldn't bring myself to spend the $$$ on them so I just came home and as i got out of the trick i looked down and realized that i have a ton of large river rock in my yard! talk about feeling dumb. Once i realized this the dog and I went on a rock hunt in the front yard and I found about 5 nice stones. I have them soaking in a bucket right now to make sure all is good before i put it in the tank.

Here's hoping the rock stays together!

edit: the more i think about it the more i don't want to use these rocks cause i don't know if they've been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides before. I don't think i really want to take the chance. crap.
