Looks 100x's better! How do you like it? To answer the question why I have no plants, I did have a lot of Anubias and java ferns but when they matured they tore them all up. I had no choice but to remove them all. Plants have no chance with my crew.

Yea it could be expensive. You can find something around a river or lake and boil it. Just post pictures of it before hand so we can see if it will work or not. In time you'll get it together. I think it looks a lot better with the background.

You did a great job!

No. You'd have to find a good piece. One that is weathered and hard. Something that isn't going to break apart in your hand. Have you checked eBay or online for driftwood?

It's a small tank do you don't need a big piece. Just maybe a nice center piece.
