    Here you go!

    As you can see, their are still a few power cords to hide and I am going to a local river tomorow for some more river rock. I know it's only going to be 15 degrees, the water will be freezing and it will be snowing, but what the hay it's free. Am I right!

    I never liked newts, when I had them they could find even the smallest hole in the top.

    Also to elaborate on my earlier comment about the dart frogs, I will say they aren't poisonous unless they eat a certain type of ant where they live. So they are perfectly safe to have.

    Off to the LFS today. I am looking for some small plants that will grow in and out of water. Going to place them near the river rock in my water. I may even pick out a few small fish today. Also, I went and picked up some more river rock and will be placing them on the left side to cover up the exposed pump. More pics later!
