I ended up with another gravel based, planted tank...it's still a bit cloudy from moving stuff around, but here it is!

Looks great, Kim! I love those little stone arches - did you make them?

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Thanks toad...yeah, I made them lol...I looked at decorations at two different pet stores and Wal-Mart and refused to pay those prices, and most of them had sharp edges. I had a bag of stones from Dollar Tree, and got two bags of the big, flat stones from Petsmart for .99 ea...I just used Super Glue too. They aren't fancy, but they were my first try. I'm going to make some more.

Is super glue aquarium safe? I've heard of people using aquarium sealant instead.

I didn't think it was, but after many hours of research, I heard from quite a few people that it is used quite often by salt water tank users to attach coral to rocks etc. The general consensus from actual users was yes. Of course, I found plenty of people who said, "I don't think it is safe, it will poison your fish", but these weren't people who had used it.

I didn't want to spend $8 dollars on AQ sealant, and then have to wait 48 hours for it to dry either. So far I have seen no ill affects from it, for my fish or my water.

Ok! I already have some aquarium safe sealant, though! And I might make a couple small caves to go with my driftwood and stones for my NPT.
Your tanks look amazing, BTW!

Thanks! I love this tank..and Bayou and "No name yet" are really enjoying it. I'm waiting for a lot of flack about the super glue too. I was very nervous about it..I would never want to hurt my fish, but as I said, it seems fine, and if I can find a way for others to be able to make things on a budget then so be it. I was so disappointed in most of the decor I bought at the pet stores...most were very jagged and sharp...these stones are so smooth, I don't have to worry about their fins. I'll keep checking my water and fish, but I'm pretty sure the super glue is fine!
