Thanks. Well, it is a small tank... I payed $21.99 for a 3L bag which worked out perfect. All in all, the substrate, plants, tools and suppliments have cost me about 5x the cost of the aquarium so far, lol. I'm thinking of going with the organic soil and cap method when I reboot my 10 gallon though, because its cheaper, and I've had some difficulty planting due to this substrate's size and low weight. It looks nice though, and smells great too :P

Just picked up some baby tears, a Moehlmanni Crypt and a Nerite Zebra snail today. I'm thinking I'm just about out of real estate for plants. I'll try to get another pic in when the water settles down.
