    I cannot start my Carnivorous tank until September I lost all the plants before I had time to plant them a massive heat wave.

    This time I will have to order every thing on line (still a local grower).

    Hey
    That drift wood has some great potential! My advice would be to work with some moss. Maybe carpet underwater with HC and the wood with moss?... Okay I have some new ideas now... Thanks!
    You might want to check out my "one hour tanks" for insperation with the moss ;) http://www.youtube.com/user/vodoc
    See ya

    Hunt the Opp and $2 shops for a brandy balloon and any other odd glasses they have.

    I like both very much.

    Where are you getting all the plants?
