no RO water for me as it comes from the tap perfect for the fish i keep.. a good peice of oak wood and the leaves works well. And dwarf cichlids love to nest in the curld up leaves. just give them a good wash then dry out in the oven.

This has my interest piqued - fresh oak leaves - dried in the oven ? And oak wood - what exactly do you mean by that. Fresh, aged, seasoned ? BTW I now have fry from the Macmasterii.

its best to pick fresh oak leaves and leave them to dye off on their own. That way theirs less chance ov the leaves getting any kind ov disease on them. my LFS sells oak wood for the aquarium for this reason to soften water

Great stuff - thanks for the advice. One thing I do have down here is an abundance of Oak trees.

Oak is one of the best logs we burn in our wood burner - but I only ever use seasoned wind falls or woodland management felled ones. I'm not about to start running round with a chainsaw. Honest. Twisted Evil

Hell yeah, you've done a bang up job on that background deano- it does look really natural,
I'm sure the cichlids are going to love their new home- don't forget the pix when you have stocked the tank.
