well the Bn's verson.

ok from the start.
I made a cave out of a oak plank soaked it 24 hours and then placed it into my tank. the amber tannins that came off this Oak has made my plecs so active. they seam to swimm around loads more than before . the over tank light hardly lights up the play sand subtrate.Im keeping a close eye on the colour and waterchange if i feel it needs lightening.

Im sure this is like the asian almond leaves that some people use.


just thought i would share with you all.
