Opinion?!

The sand is pretty fine so it's hard to get distinctive lines. I still need to get a wide tooth something to make the lines, so maybe that will help.

Oh wow! Looks awesome! Can't believe how icky it was when you first got back. You did a good job cleaning it out! By the way, I have the same heater. How do you feel about it? I'm not too happy with it, it came with the TopFinn 10 gallon kit.

I haven't had any problems with it and I've had it for almost a year. Although I thought I saw someone mention that Marineland did have a recall on the stealths so..

more pics tonight of it filled up :D

Alright, pics tonight I promise!

Also, I finally filled it up last night. I had originally filled it up and put the java moss in there but there was a lot of small plant pieces that ended up on the sand so I had to take everything out, clean out the sand and before I put the java moss back in, I went through it a little at a time, wash it out and spread it out to avoid a large amount of it floating to the bottom again. It worked. :) Fleur really loves swimming through the little paths.

That's one of the main reasons I'm switching substrate. I'll go look at the local petstore and see what they have though. :)
:D
I'm doing something like that for my glass 5gallon my bf owes me. (we were cleaning it out and he busted his hand STRAIGHT through it! :p jeez, so much for an easy hand!)
I love the look of twigs with java moss. They make the best willow trees etc.
I wanted to do a weathertop scene with some actually haha.
<3 What you're doing!
