Thanks for the nice comments. I was given the substrate so I don't know it's name but it's black, size from sand to 3mm - it seems more like a soil than a 'dead' gravel. It was incredibly dirty but I didn't clean it. It was already loaded with MTS, which I think are great.

How in the world do u make a tank like that! That's incredible!! How do you fill it up like that? And do u have c02? Was it expensive to make? I am very interested in aquascaping and apparently you con do it but I can't seem to get my tank right!

Try a few Mystery snails, and best bet are Pond snails, though it is controversial about people who do not like them in their tanks. They don't really have a problem over populating for me.

The really broad piece to the right was cleaned off in about 10 days. This is in a 72G, so it is a BIG piece (there are three pieces total in there.)



This piece had almost an inch of slime to the rear and back, mostly about a 1/4-1/2" Was cleaned in about 2 weeks with 2 Mystery Snails and some Ramshorns. It was harder for the mystery snails to get into the sharp crevices. The Ramshorns took a little longer!
