thanks for the tips... i'll be sure to shake up the GS well. Yeah, i'm going to GS/cocofiber the back wall. plus mix in a little waterfall with a trough that goes down across the wall made out of some other pieces of driftwood I had lying around. i do have PVC pipe intended for reinforcing the false bottom. I just didn't get to that part yet.

yes! home depot much to my surprise carried the driftwood. i was on my way to the garden section to look for coco fiber (i forgot i bought that at petsmart). and right on the way outside they had a huge display w/ a lot of broms and air plants and they had a big selection of that grape wood below it. the pieces i got were only like $2-$4. pretty reasonable.

i like the larger piece because it has a nice hollow area that I can plant a brom in. i know nothing about plants yet, but i have an idea for what i think looks cool.

wish it wasn't raining here. i'm worried that my silicone will take longer to set with all the cool weather / humidity right now.
