    Yes I do - a LFS has a really nice set up - I love how the branch looks combined with other rock. I have some REALLY nice rock I will be mixing it in with, knowing me I will set up look - break down - set up look - break down and then repeat.... I ordered 25 pounds of large and XL pieces, I talked to them asked for smaller branchy type than the thicker branches my LFS has.

    I cant wait to get it.

    AND ITS UP!!!!! WOOO HOOO!!!! After waiting 3 weeks for the company to ship my branch rock and numerous excuses I canceled the order and went with the rock I had.

    I think for my first shot aquascaping it came out nice - a little thick on the right side - but nice shelves and tunnels on the left. I am going to live with it a week and maybe change it up a little more. 24 hours running and water is crystal clear!!

    Will post some pics tonight.
