The foam part. I filled in the back and let it dry some bafore laying the hose in, otherwise it sunk in.

tested the sandfall, and it works great! def gonna have to empty the tank to put it in tho... that thing floats like crazy! well, i find out monday if i get the 55 and other 20g... ill let you guys know what happens as it might end up going in the other 20g with Castiel (see angel at top...) and only Castiel... and what do you guys think? the other 20g, if i get it, will have black sand, should the fall have black also, red, or a mix of the 2? i cant decide so all input is welcome!
