Thanks, everyone Jordtim seems to really like it, and it is extremely low maintenance, I haven't had to do anything to it since I set it up at the end of August except add some water about once a week. Although I have added some more decorations (plastic plants, driftwood, and rocks) and used ClearView on the background, before the ClearView, the background was just a grey blob below the waterline.

Lengthwise shot, that is looking through 4 feet of water. The microbubbles that are slightly clouding the water are due to the fact that the fluval is just about due for it's daily re-prime (which it does automatically).

My local pet store, it didn't have any obvious branding, but it comes shrink wrapped in a plastic bag with a small card telling you to soak it for a few days to prevent the dreaded yellow tinge. :) They range from about 7-15 dollars depending on the size of the piece. The piece on the left is the newest, and when I saw it, I had to get it because it has lots of interesting holes and passages through it, like a piece of burlwood. I figure it will make some good hiding places for any "prey" I add to the tank once it finishes cycling. :)

Thanks, Jordtim seems to like it, and so does my wife, which was the most important criteria. Next step is an ABTA so I can fill the tank to the top.
