I will have to look into that! I was planning to do soil with a sand cap but hasn't decided on sand yet, was leaning towards pool filter or play sand, but this could definitely work!

Lookin good! Is the sand sharp at all, isn't it coal slag ground up into sand particles? I am going to be picking up Garnet sand from a sandblasting supply company when I have time to go 1 hour each way in a direction I don't usually go very often!

pwc on three Betta tanks and topped off the rest.

Does anyone else here have problems with their Hornwort melting? Sometimes it seems great then there is a melt down. idnk why... AAArrrgh!

Shopping for necessities for my new Orange Eye Blue Tiger's arrival in a couple days!!! Scared and excited all at the same time.

Today I tested my water( all good) and gave my fish some bloodworms as a treat. Then stared at my tank for about 45 minutes, watching my new clown loach "get rude" with my Oto cats and act the clown.
