    Hi Guys. I am i the Process of starting a South American Biotope Tank.
    The tank is a Cube. 700 x 700 x 700 mm. Getting 8 discus, 4 Rams and 3 Whiptail Catfish.

    I would like a piece ornate (gnarled and full of character) piece of Bog wood. Root like features with longish branches. I have not seen anything in the shops that quite fit my specs. Anyone wanting to part with a piece, please let me know.

    A dry Vine Stomp will also be great.

    Gal? Or it is a Girl? Bud/buddy is friend or acquaintance with a common interest. I am sure they it adds up to the same thing here on this forum. Maybe a gender icon is needed on this forum for guys lilke me who dont think gender identification is important, but socially correct.

    Sorry Veegal. No gender discrimination intended. PS i am visiting "Buddy":p in Cape Town on Saturday at 11:00. If possible I would like to see your pieces of BOG wood on my way back from there. sms me if it is possible on 0827284996
