NO, not enough area for a DSB to do anything, so skip the sand. Like I told you, the cheato in my sump does not tumble and you see how fast it grows. I have an 18w cfl lighting it (24/7) and it just grows.

Nice set up Jonathan. Are you going to skin the stand with anything?

I know this is random but how long did it take for the rock to arrive? I ordered a week ago and never got a tracking number or shipping notification.

Yeah, eventually. For now, I think I'm just going to drape a sheet over it.

I can't remember, but it wasn't the next day or anything. He sent me an email right after I ordered asking me what kind of rock I wanted, then I didn't hear back for several days, then I got a tracking number one day. He has a phone number on his website... you can call him and ask for the status.

Here's the scape I went with when I re-arranged everything. Pardon the hair algae please.

You better get it started! Empty tanks suck!!!


Ziggy pointed out a flaw in my scape that I failed to notice until he said something. I am going to fill in that 'cave' on the right with a rock so it doesn't look so fake. I can't believe I missed it.

Start a build thread and document the whole thing! DIY stuff is great... since everyone does it a bit differently. Looks like you're off to a good start.
