Thanks for your two replies. Any reason for the driftwood being a bad idea if it is cured, asides from sharp edges (which i'd take off) .. let me know please!

beaches contain all kinda of pollutions. Even if it looked clean, it is polluted in some sort of way.
not to mention the salt in the water.

Waffer wisteria, guupy/naja grass, crypts, or anchrias. I would say hornwort but without really awesome conditions they shed needles like crazy, which is very very annoying and woukf cause lots of problems with water quality for a small tank.

Driftwood found in totally freshwater, so no deltas, like lakes or streams work. First and most major problem, salt, what you don't want in a tank for freshwater fish, and with wood that has been in if so long, it may take ages before you never get any salt. Second, pollution, have you seen what goes into the water? Don't even want to risk contamination.

Look for aquarium drifrwood online, you can find some really nice pieces. Two small stores for fish sell driftwood, one... Nevermind I don't even want to start the have so much.

When she said beaches. I immediately thought of the said beach being like the FL beaches(only with possibly less people) /facepalm

Here is my 30 Gallon tank I am starting to cycle so there are no fish in it yet. I just want to show you how it looks so far. There is a Croc head in there as a cave hide away and a floating action clown that goes up and down in the water. It has an 18 inch bubble wand. There are regular plants and a few glow in the dark plants and a glow mountain plus a glowing cave. There are 2 heaters, one at each end and a good filter. When I get out to another big petstore I will buy some more plants for it. I can't wait till I can add my fish from the 10 Gallon they are in right now to the new 30 gallon aquarium!

Here is a day picture and a night picture....

Rearranged Brutus's 5.5 gallon. He now has a bridge decoration, Java Fern, Wisteria, and a Tom mini internal filter with spray bar.
