looks great. i have the same substrate and love it. For your consideration, fluval has a round sponge pre-filter that can be mounted on the filter intake incase you were considering shrimp or something delicate.

Tks, I was considering some shrimp in here and a sponge would be needed. Im trying to get my pH down. It's around 7.4 now.

X3...we should start a club! Haha, J/k!


Looks great DT! If you having too much flow and you're using the filter that comes with those tanks you can just lift up the tube a little and slow the flow. Or get a sponge stick it around the intake.
