Thanks Steve :) I won't actually be soaking the wood, simply because it's far too big :rofl fortunately hornwood doesn't leach tannins, and sinks straight away :) I'll just need to give it a good clean before it goes into the tank :)

It's going to look amazing! I thought I would be traumatized after seeing the gaps from the missing plants, but it still looks great. :heart

I thought I'd be devastated too :rofl still plenty to do, but I'm happy that it doesn't look awful :)

It's really sad about your planted tank it was amazing. But I do get the cleaning issue and appreciate myself to be able to take out the wood and clean underneath. Your Glenwood looks amazing and so does the anubias. Can't wait to see the results. Where did you get you're wood

Your tank still looks amazing, even while in transition! I look forward to seeing the rest of the transformation.

You've been busy Alicia after Christmas with your tank.  :)  Love the changes you've done.  As always, it's a gorgeous tank.

Tell your little brother he looks just like you with a smile of dimples. :)  He's adorable just like you. :)

 

I wish I could just blink my eyes three times and magically have your tank and fish in my living room.  That would be awesome. 

(I think I might have said this already though.  That's how bad I would like my wish to come true. :)   )
