Something Old and Something New-2.5 Metaframe & 5 gal Riparium

This was supposed to be two Metaframe tanks, but the 5 gal leaks, so presently using a regular five gal for the riparium. I am looking into getting it repaired though. I started getting them set up this week. I still have a lamp that should be delivered today, more plants and the fish should be here next week.
Here is what I have so far~

Thank you Tabby. Lilyth, I usually use estes white sand, so that is what I ordered. But this company sent me something called aqua terra. I asked them why in an e-mail. They said it is made by the same company and also safe for fw.{I also looked it up and confirmed that} I actually like it better than the estes sand I am used to. With the estes sand I had to soak it in a bucket for several days to get it to stop floating. This is much finer and sunk right to the bottom without issue. It gets a little cloudy for a day and that's it. A warning though, it is a painstaking process to keep it looking nice.
