Thanks!!
My family and I had a lot of fun finding those driftwood pieces at the lake, to me planing the scape for a tank is just as fun as buying the tanks inhabitants.
Will do on the plant up dates.

How can you tell if it is safe? I have a river nearby and might go on my own little journey xD

Well what I did when I was picking up driftwood was just get any pieces that I liked and could tell had been in the water for a long time. When I got home I ended up boiling the pieces that I found and liked the most for probably eight hours total maybe a little more. You will need a fairly big pot, but any pieces you get for a ten gallon should fit in what you have. I boiled them till the water stopped turning so dark brown.
Google "how to prepare driftwood you find for the aquarium" It was free, fun, and I got in my opinion better pieces, that would have cost a lot if I had bought them.
Post pics if you find good pieces!!! =)

Thank you! I have to give full credit to my bulbs, I don't use any fertilizers or any special substrate. The two 23 Watt 6500K spiral bulbs just make the plants grow full.

Thank you Hishifishy.
My sorority is doing great, I'm still enjoying it just as much as ever. I have a couple new mystery snails and I added a Bushy nose pleco just a few weeks ago, she has taken care of my algae problems.
Even though my tank has been set up for months now, its still not fully stocked and I plan to add at least two more female Betta fish as I find them that I really love.
I'll post some new pics soon, I plan to do a re-scape.
