Here's what the cap looks like, I have 1.5 inches of each of the soil and activ flora.
It's not consistent though, the center is only a half inch cap, so I need one more bag. Lesson to anyone doing a 6x2 footprint 180 or 240. You need 10 bags or 150 pounds even for a 1.5 inch substrate cap.
I did not slope the substrate much (maybe a quarter inch?), because well, there's already two full feet of front to back space, and it looks like it.
Tomorrow, I'll add the last bag, hardscape, fill with water, Prime dechlorinator, and start adding ammonia to cycle. Then we plant.

Reason: I feel like it.
