    I agree - that is one beautiful loach! Be sure to click on the green arrow at the bottom, there are several pages of videos, not just the first page. Some are community tanks, but many of them are river tanks and some really look natural, like the actual bottom of a river - they're really cool. Glad you're enjoying them. The videos are really helping me to see what I like and don't like as far as aquascaping goes and seeing the actual loaches in the tank really helps me in making decisions about what I may or may not want.

    So my stand is done!! :D I've got it placed, leveled better than I thought it would, and I've already started to add everything. I'll have pics uploaded tonight. I'm kind of getting ahead of myself because I've been placing rocks that I'll have to take out cause they need to be boiled, I just wanted to see what it looked like. I also played around with my driftwood. The pieces I've highlighted here before and a few others. One in particular is incredible looking! A very well preserved stump I found in the woods. However it is 100% purple heart cedar. Not sure about that..... I'll have to read up on that.

    So I've been reading up on putting cedar in your tank. This is a very heated debate with good points on both sides. I really like this piece and once you'll see it you'll know why I'm still wanting to use it. I think what I'll do is boil the crap out of it and if it still leaches tannins I might pass on it now, let it cure for a longer period of time and add it to another tank, or add it to this one at a later date.

    Hey Rob, I have a cedar stump in my 29gal, the one that won TOTM. It had been cut and left in ground for years. I felt it was safe cause it had dried out to a light grey. I washed, then stored it soaking in a tote for a year. Not intentionally, I did not need it at the time. All fish are well and ABN loves it.

    Cool, that is exactly what this one is like. I found it in the woods, the tree had been cut down and the stump pulled out of the ground. I only realized it was cedar went I went to cut the tap root off. So I'll boil like crazy and may just let it soak for a long time. I'll also have to scrape the moss off of it. It would also make an amazing display for a poison dart frog vivarium. Would need less prep work if I went that way down to road.

    I read the research you prolly read. Since the piece was completely dried out, I would have put the piece straight in after it was water logged, but I was not gonna take a chance with my EBJD tank.
    They are beautiful with tiny points twisting all around and Id like to hunt down some more.

    I know of at least two more in the woods. Now that I know my neighbor better he won't mind me going on his property to get them.

    As promised, pictures of the completed stand and initial scaping.


    I used just enough sand to cover the pipes. Is should all be covered when all is said and done.

    Here is all the stone I have right now and the two pieces of driftwood I'm seriously considering adding. I don't think this scape needs much.

    This is the piece I'm in love with but still debating on whether or not I want to use it. Seeing that it is red cedar. But oh so cool!!
    It will look even better when it doesn't blend in with the wall behind it.

    This last piece was put in just to see what it looked like but I think I'll hold on to it for a smaller tank.

    Next step is to get the rest of the rock I need and save up for my lights.

    Black construction paper or paperboard would do fine to blackout the back of the tank if you wanted to do that. Great pics, looks really good man.
