I am sad to announce that a little past New Years my boss Mike has passed away.
I am not sure what the family will do with the store so this is now no longer an LFS-only tank as I do not know what will become of Something Fishy.
On a happier note I have just filled the tank with water today and transferred trimmings from the 5g (which I tore down) and my 5.5g. The tank is all set-up and looks great! I am so glad I got that substrate and I'd take it over the Potting Soil any day as it is easier to plant and every time you disturb the substrate soil doesn't explode into the water column!
I didn't realize how blurry this picture was, I'll get a better pic up later.
