Congrats to @AquaBarb for their awesome Jewel Rio 47 gallon river tank. That tank is perfection at it's best.
Aquabarb's tank will soon be added to our TOTM WALL OF FAME and they will receive a profile banner signifying the win.

Coming in 2nd place is @Uberhoust. Great looking tank.
And coming in third place is @FishBR. Nice job.

For those who entered but didn't win this month, keep improving your tanks and enter again in February 2022 when we will again feature tanks sized at 31 gallons and larger.

Right now, we are accepting entries in our Pet of the Month contest. If you have a pet (no fish allowed) , please enter the competition. Link to entry thread follows:

where did you get that piece of driftwood?
I purchased the main piece online off facebook market place. Luckily the seller was pretty local to me to go and collect it. I then just added the second piece on top.

Ive found market place a pretty good source for driftwood, i also aqcuired a nice big 4ft piece for my 5ft tank
