Eeeep, thankie! They've definitely been an exercise in figuring out how to make the most of a small space, and as a total newbie it's been a challenge, but a thoroughly enjoyable one!

Does anyone use black diamond blasting sand in their tank??
I'm still trying to decide if I want to go with that, or pool filter sand in the 26. I have heard that the black diamond can be a bit rough, but has the heaviest weight so not as likely to tear up your filter?
Thoughts?

Your gonna want to pull that java fern outta the gravel and attach it to a rock or the head in there. It will rot out in you leave it buried too long
