    Ok scored some more rock and another piece of driftwood yesterday for a great price. Here's before and after pic's. Thinking about pulling some of the green out on the left side of the tank to expose more of the driftwood. Kind of a rushed pic on the after shot.

    After.

    Nice setup, the new layout looks good, nice work. I still like how well you have blended the hardscape into the background on the tank, that really doesn't seem like it would be easy to do. That would be a good layout for a cichlid community with all the caves you have. I see you picked up an aqueon pro, how do you like it so far?

    Ok I've found 3 more small pieces of driftwood that will Work and really make the tank Stand out. One of them is hardwood from around here the other 2 are Malaysia driftwood so I'm letting them soak in hot water for 4 or 5 days to keep most of the tannins from leaching in my tank. I will take pics when I'm finally done. Thanks for all the positive responses.
