    That's a rhizo, they come in a few colors, white is the cheapest, red being the highest priced and some have really cool "flames" towards the middle, there's a much smaller half died off rhizo directly below the larger one, it's a buddy's and semi hidden because it's ugly.

    yeah, I like my biocube. I always forget to do the turkey baster thing, and then about once a week, the "dust storm" blows in...

    WHAT! I thought we were already friends. Just the kind that argue a lot! :biggrin:

    Thanks. He's a trooper. He's made it through 3 moves and 2 bouts of ich and 1 bout of marine velvet. I've had him for 3 years.

    Thanks. Copy all you want. Can't wait to see what you put together.

    Thank you. Sorry no trades. From the looks of it maybe I should copy right it! :gay1:

    At the moment I am trying different things. Top has Cheato. Second chamber has Fluval Series C Carbon bag. (Fits perfectly in the chamber) and a couple of pieces of rubble rock in the 3rd (bottom). No skimmer. I do bi-weekly 5g water changes.

    My first and favorite clown was a maroon. I miss her. My kitty got a hold of her.
