The tank has a home. I found a good spot on my kitchen counter.

Time for the seasonings and new Amazonia:

I dumped an entire bag into it.

Time for the stones: This is my initial design. I wanted to stay as close to it as possible.

And this is the 1st attempt with the stones in the tank. I noticed that I was a few stones short and the right side seemed a bit too overpowered by the left grouping. So I pulled a non Seiryu stone to temporarily fill the gap. However it kinda sticks out like a sore thumb.

This is the redo with the temporary stone to the right.

I definitely want a more consistent look so I went out and bought 3 more stones. It works out to be about $55 in stones from the local LFS.
