So here is one of the exos I got while petsmart had their sell on them. Everything in this is natural except the false bottom and ties holding two broms until they root.

Hm... that's a tough decision. I'm partial to retics, myself. Wink

What kind of wood did you use? Malaysian? It looks great.

Yes, it is Malaysian. I know, it is a very tough call. I'm leaning towards the Vanzos though as they would really pop and show up in there.

Sadly, I'm not Sad. This was by far one of the best vivs I have built yet that I really like the layout, but I got a new protean tank and didnt have room for both Sad. The new tank is going to look 10xs better than this one anyways so I can't really complain.
