Moon Sand added to Cichlid tank.

Personally, I LOVE IT! The cichlids stand out so nicely. Tell me what you guys think, no lies either!

Oh, just a quick 5 hours! LOL. Actually...let's see. I started at 3, had to go to dentist at 5, got home at 6, ate dinner, finished at 830....so yeah, I'd say about 5 hours.
