A good place to get some driftwood for aquascaping is ur LFS (local fish store). Here is some lights I would recomend.Utar said:Thank you all for replying and giving me some reading to do. In landscaping my tank, I would really like some ideas. What brand of lighting do you recommend? Can you point me to a good place to buy some type of wood for landscaping?
Where is a good place to order driftwood, I have seen it on Amazon but not sure I trust it.Gel0city said:How about driftwood? A lot of people have it in their tanks and it looks natural... as for plants make sure you have a strong enough light, fertilizer, as well as root tabs if you want them to thrive. I would warn you against duckweed and frogbit, because without proper maintenance they can take over your entire tank.
With this virus thing happening, I try and limit where I go. The closest LFS is Houston and that is an hour away for me. So I would prefer to order it, but if a must I will make the trip.FishGuy4563 said:

Yes I order stuff of Amazon all the time, it is just the reviews about the driftwood I have read. Some say they are lucky and get a nice piece, while others say they are disappointed in what they got. Maybe I am asking to much, but I would like more choices or sites to choose form for ordering.FishGuy4563 said:Honestly IMO Amazon is usually pretty trustworthy.
Yes it likely would be! Go light on the gravel if you're going to add it though.Utar said:-Mak- Thank you very much for the websites. I like the ruler on the first site you recommended, and the second site has some really great pieces. I will check out the youtube sites also.
About the pea gravel cap, how about a layer of pool filter sand (I have plenty of that here.) and then the gravel. Do you think that will be a better cap?
