    Most definitely will do that.

    I've got it pretty well set up now, if the water weren't still so cloudy I'd post a pic. It's looking pretty good, IMO. Will probably buy a few more plants for it tonight though.

    My wife and I went out for dinner tonight and then stopped by petsmart after. I meant to buy some plants but they were having a fish sale. We ended up buying some zebra danios and neons (50 cents each!) to boost the school numbers in the 55 in her classroom. Totally forgot to buy plants. D'oh!

    The water is clearing but is still too cloudy for a good picture. Have to wait until morning.

    Thanks for the compliments on the wood. Strictly speaking, I'm not sure if you can call it driftwood, since it's never drifted. This year the county decided to drain a small nearby lake in order to perform repairs on the dam. There are now exposed tree stumps all over the lakebed. I decided to go down there one day and break off a few bits for use in aquascaping. No such luck, might as well have been trying to break solid rock. I went back the next day armed with a handsaw and after some vigorous sawing, I was able to collect the two stumps that you see in this tank. That lake was established in 1947, these two stumps have been under water for 66 years! It took quite a bit of cleaning to get all of the dried up, crusty lake crud off of them (and of course I boiled them for a very long time as well), but I think they look really great in there.
