    Laurier, let me know if your lookin for anything (plants, moss etc) before I drive into town this weekend. I dont have much but can always make a few small cuttings for you.

    PS - Its about time ;)

    did the back ground. really doesn't do the tank justice. but i need alot of moss but picked up a few plants and i am sure this tank is going to be killer once i complete it

    Hi,

    You said your background doesn't do the tank justice. I think that the problem is that the substract you putted in the foam (probably peat moss), is just too wet. When the ''coating'' is dry, it will stick better to the silicone and makes a better look.

    Keep working!

    So i guess my pictures are not pictures of my yellow watchman's goby

    As of today i shut down my Nano SW tank in my comp room. This time i am hoping i actually finish the build. Just waiting for the weather to warm up but after seeing those galacts i need to get back into the hobby.
