Black sand in my 90G

Well i finally got my 90G changed from gravel (turquoise colored) to black sand my amazon sword plants are acting puny in it so far, but on the flip side my Cory's are loving it.

Heres my oldest Cory Moby playing in it while one of my nosey angels watches to see what I'm doing. (pic was taken with my phone so poor quality...Sorry!)

Wow that looks great. Is that Tahitian Moon sand? I got some as I was transitioning from gravel as well. I had this plastic wood decoration that I wanted to take out because it looks really fake, but my featherfin LOVES it. Makes me sad because I can't take it away from him, but I want to go w/ a more natural looking scape as you've done here.

Looks great, i used Tahitian Moon in my old loach tank. I just love the look the black sand gives to the tank. makes the rest of the tank show up much better.
