I this looks good so far, I think as it grows in it will look a lot better. I really like the piece of wood you went with. I hate waiting too, I've had one bowl going emmersed for weeks now and it is killing me.
Idleivey, thanks for the comments, i love that wood as well. I waited like month and a half before flooding,couldnt wait more as the micro sword were not growing.. could be cos its winter here and i dont have any heater in my bowl. good luck with your bowl as well. hope it will be nicely carpeted before you flood it with water.
