Awesome! Mopani is one of my favorite types for sure since it just has great weight to it and you can pretty much do anything with it. Malaysian is sort of light, it depends on the piece but it can be pretty heavy as well and will normally sink right away too. I find that Malaysian has more of a velvety look to it like it is softer where Mopani is burly and gnarled looking, Malaysian also tends to be straighter pieces; well...the ones I've owned have been more straight. I'm sure it's possible for Malaysian to be just as bendy and curvy as Mopani, it's just from my experience is all ^_^

Either way, your tank looks fantastic!

So I recently took in a half dead veil tail from a co-worker who didn't know that bettas shouldn't be kept in small vases with plastic flowers. Nursed him back to health and now he's happy as ever in the Fluval Chi I set up for him :D

I was there a month ago. :) Had my betta in a 2 gallon and now he is in a cycled five gallon. I turned my 2 gallon (which is actually an aquaponic tank and now I can actually use it as such) into a low-light aquascaped shrimp garden. Check it out. Your fish will be happier with more room and you can do some cool stuff with your little tank. The moss carpet on the stone is growing out!

Sorry about the light.

I need rock for my new tank. Where did you get the rocks? I'm having so much trouble finding anything of size. I don't want the little ones, I want an assortment of about the size you have.
I have Quartz rock in my yard, but not sure if there is any metal in it, so not too keen on using it.

Thanks polkadot! Dude seems much happier in this tank! hopefully he won't glass surf in this tank...so far so good! Mart, I got the rocks at petsmart, I really love the rock and it wasn't too expensive, 3.27 each for the larger rocks in the back that the cave is made of, and the smaller rock in the foreground came in a pack of 3 for 1.99. I too don't feel comfortable using rock from my yard, so I figured this was the way to go.
