Bags of pea gravel under your substrate will help you get higher in the tank using less substrate
I've never had any issue with the bags of pea gravel, that's what I love about this hobby, everyone does it their own way.. there is no right way to go.. definitely a wrong way though. Lol
I have but I don’t want to pay more $10 for driftwood. This piece was from a wedding centerpiece, so I got it for free.Have you thought about spider wood? You can get some pretty big pieces for cheap on eBay. You can do a lot with spider wood, all the different shapes and sizes, make it a beautiful addition to any aquarium. I recommend going to local small businesses before buying off of eBay, but sometimes the local places don't really have what your looking for.
Thanks, I’ll try that rnIf you can find a way to combine 1 and 4 that would look really nice. Perhaps the largest rock goes in the back.
I changed out the large rock to a smaller one.I'd move the largest even further left so it goes behind the wood, then move some of the smaller ones on the left to the right.
Thanks! I have it sitting in direct sunlight and it seems like it’s peeling it on its own.looking good!!! how are you removing the bark? I have some branchy wood that's a bit similar, but it's a pain to sandpaper and file all of it...
