Hi, I think first off you need a backing on, then more sand, some nice small rocks, perhaps a small piece of bog wood, more plants and top it off with a school of small fish, just my thoughts.......

I think they mean a background but a lot of people go without.

If you can't decide which color sand I suggested just going back through this thread and look at pictures. Personally I like the black sand better. I have it in 2 of my tanks. I tried a mix of black and white in one and I don't like it as much

Daughter picked up 20G of SW for my new tank and 5G RODI water while I was at work. Tomorrow comes rolling up the sleeves! Hope to get it up and running even though it won't be filled up yet I can get it started cycling with a chunk of LR from the other tank, just mainly to get something going on the dry rocks I have in my storage tub, (not Live).

Then start thinking over the layout.

Learn more about Epoxying rocks, maybe before I get them all into the water, I am learning more and more!!! Cycle the rocks that I am not epoxying first, then add the 2-3 part epoxyed set up. This might take more time to complete the SW tank, as I am thinking I might like a different color sand in the 35G tank.

My last plant added to my 75g. DHG woo! It's 2 3x5 mats of it. I rescaped some to accommodate it. Dojo has tirelessly tried to dig it up but to no avail. I win this round! We will see if it holds out till I get home tonight. Still considering getting rid of the Repens because of that dang dojo.

Gonna do 5g change on JD tank tonight.

Blue ram pair for 45g? Maybe...
