Very nice effort!

White sand is great and gives it a way more natural look.

B-E-A-UTIFUL! I love hot they are such small plants but the tank looks sooo large. I always try to make that effect but it never works as planned. Great inspiration.

Bleeker's the name

It's so cool to see how it looked before it all grew in...gives me hope I'm really digging this, it's so sophisticated and confident, you didn't just throw a bunch of stuff in there like a noob (cough-me-cough). How long did this take to grow in??

I would really LOVE to see this setup with a moonlight shimmering effect.

PLEASE tell me you are planning to do this.
