Totally, completely cool. I'm starting to really like the look of a tank with sand.
Thanks! I'm planning a school of small Corydoras for that "lake" of sand.
If your island was made of a darker gravel I think it would look even more realistic as an island.
How'd you get the anubias on the rock?
I can try to find a darker substrate at some point. That gravel was all I had. As for the anubias on the rock....super glue gel.
