well i went by the lfs today and grabbed a few more stems (moneywort and purple cabomba), I also grabbed a piece of driftwood to make a moss tree. I grabbed stones to make some caves, black foam to make a backing but I havent gotten around to doing those yet. I did however silicone sand onto my exo terra hides:


and the tank: its hard to see the new plants because they are in the back/sides

Oh about the Exo-Terra decorations. I thought they weren't designed for aquarium use?

Why did you use sand to cover them? You should have should have used diamonds and pearls.

I found a statement from the company saying they were okay, guess I will find out. I want a natural looking tank so shiny things are out, wanted them to blend into the substrate.
