Where did you get that beautiful substrate/sand?

@ Aluyasha - Thank you! Those plants I found in the reptile section of the pet store. They have a suction cup so I can stick them to the back wall of the tank. They are aquarium safe.

@ Fawnleaf - Thank you!

@ Littlebittyfish - The substrate is play sand I got from Lowe's.

Cool. I will have to glance at the reptile section next time I go to the petstore.
Are they cheaper than aquarium silk plants?

The play sand is inert so it doesn't affect the Ph.

Those plants with the suction cups are actually plastic but they passed the pantyhose test (The other plants are silk). They had them in small, medium and large sizes. I got the small size and they were $1.99 each so, yeah, pretty cheap.

That is amazing! I will have to remember to look at the play sand next time. It looks really nice, it almost looks like it has black specks in it. Ijust switched over to sand earlier today and i think it is a bit too white.

I just did the sand this morning, the water looks a bit cloudy still.
Not sure if I like the sand bottom or gravel yet.



Cleo is a huge old guy! He makes my 5 gallon look really small.
