I use play sand and organic dirt. I love the sand and it is so amusing to watch the shrimp dig around in it. You just have to be extra careful when adding water so you don't get kickups.

I really like sand. To me, the finer substarte loos so much more put together than gravel. i think you can't go wrong with either, it's just a personal choice. Look at a bunch of pictures of gravel based and sand based tanks. I bet you like one lots more.

Miracle Organic works fine. Just make sure you sift it. You want to get all the big chunks out so all you are left with is the rich, soft dirt.

Okay cool :)

im also trying to come up with a hardscape item. Im surrounded by desert in Arizona, currently at my cabin so im surrounded by pine tree forest right now.

I would really like a branch or something in there. just to add some definition to the tank.

I heard a cholla branch would work to but i don't know how that would go with the theme im going for, which i actually have no idea what the theme is. i guess its my theme :p idk haha.

Any ideas on things from a desert/forest that could look good in a tank. im cool with rocks too, i just don't know what kind.

Ideas for themes would be cool to. maybe a unique desert theme :D i just don't know how to execute it, because mostly theres no underwater cacti :p. any ideas welcome. or maybe expanding on the desert theme, im really liking the idea of the desert theme

By bunch they mean 5-8 steams, water sprite is by plant and its on sale extremely good plant, baby tears will do a carpeting effect just wont look like grass we just got some and they give you a really generous amount of that, peachi and I have been very happy with the stuff from there, the bacopa is our least favorite along with the vals

Coming up with a good theme is hard. Anyone have ideas?

I was thinking of like a desert theme but I don't know how to pull it off.
