Decided to return the beautiful sword plant because it's needs way beyond what I am striving for with our tanks. Unfortunately; it was gorgeous! Anyway, here is an updated pick...just added more plants yesterday and have more on the way.

Hey thanks! We like it too. The fish seem to enjoy the new set up a lot better, especially the driftwood.

Any problems with the sand settling? You have an HOB filter? I do and I've had people warn me about sand ruining the impeller. So I have been worried about switching to sand

I do have a HOB filter. No problems, but when I stir the sand I turn the filter off until the sand settles, then switch it back on. Sometimes it primes itself, other times it needs a little help getting started again. Doesn't bug me though.
