i'm about to start a 5.5 in nearly the same fashion. i picked up some aqua soil of the sns just for this. i'm glad you tried this before me, can't wait to see how it turns out! keep us in the loop, please.
edit - i think homer has the biggest signature on here. it's like half the screen.
Will definitely update, but I want to give the tank enough time to play itself out. I am not too worried if I end up tearing it down. This is just an experiment and all experiments entail risk, but that is part of learning. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say."
Okay as far as the signature goes, I will modify or edit if bothers people or mods
Edit: I trimmed it down.
