    Pulled the wood out for a good soaking in the tub... Will definitely have to pick up a few pieces of slate tile from Lowes to affix the wood to. These babies will be a while to get water logged. The canopy has come together nicely. Tried out the hardware and it too worked as planned. Everything broke down smoothly. I will go rock hunting this weekend and plan out my final tank scape and get some plants ordered. I have 4 wisteria already from my other tank I can use. Maybe by next weekend I can start with the substrate.

    For plants this would be my thoughts, go with the microswords up front, get a few crypts, maybe 1 or 2 anubias, and go with jungle val a bit across the back. You may be able to get some reds in with those plants. Plus there are countless others available

    I noticed a couple of "soft" spots on a couple pieces of the driftwood... Do you think these will be a problem or should I attempt to cut those areas out?

    Depends... how soft... if you can dig that park out it might help a little, but as long as its not a big spot I think you should be fine. I think a little wood breaking down in the tank will always happen

    The soft spots are not that bad and I don't think they will pose a problem. Nothing really new to report today. I think as far as plants I am going to give some moss a try again on the wood and maybe some lace java fern. I like the look of micro swords in the foreground in a few areas. I think some vals in the back would be good. Stems are easy enough to add later as needed but I really need to get the attached plantings before hand.

    Kind of want to do a terrace with the substrate like this (it's crude but you get the idea)

    That substrate layout would be amazing! And i'm glad to hear you got the plants. Should look awesome with the gravel set up and driftwood

    To help minimize evaporation I utilized some left over egg crate plastic to make a 3 piece cover for the sump. This helps keep debris and other items from falling into the sump. I then covered the bottom side with inexpensive shrink window film from the hardware store.

    I know NOTHING about sumps - but that appears to be a thing of beauty.
