About a month ago, Acro posted that he had an awesome anubias rooted on a fake log, along with two BN plecos, for sale.

http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/110907-rooted-anubias-and-bristlenose-plecos-for-sale/?hl=%2Bacro+%2Banubias

So, I jumped at the chance, since Sean's plants and decoration combinations are just amazing and I have been wanting to convert my 100 gallon tank into a planted tank again. Today, I received the box from Sean. I was a little worried, since it's been so hot, both here, and in Georgia. It turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Sean's packing is just amazing, and everything came in perfect shape. The log and anubias were disinfected, and then added to the tank later. The 2 BNs are hanging out in my 10 gallons for a while, until I do some shuffling around to move some (gold)fish out of the 100g to accommodate them. In any case, I am so excited, that I thought I would share some pics of the new plant in the somewhat redecorated 100g. I am using a combination of T8 lighting, and 2 21 inch Marineland Hidden LEDs here.

This is the tank

Thank you so much, Sean, for being an awesome person, and for such a fantastic job. I look forward to future buys from you! :thumbs:

Finally, here's a demo of how important camera settings can be. With a different setting, the pic makes the water look really cloudy. :o

That looks great! With that huge Anubias you certainly don't have room for all those fish! I'd be happy to take a couple of them off your hands. Yep, that's me--always looking out for others. :rofl

Thanks for the pics! :clapping:

But where would you put them, I wonder?

He's going to send them to me, and I'll keep them in my handbag, like the fashion mayven that I am. :o

Very nice.. Do the fish hide in the log?

So far, they have not even tried to go in the log, at that I have seen. Lol
