The sand is CaribSea Instand Aquarium, Crystal River, which is a medium grade sand. I've got a pretty large layer of crushed lava rock underneath to facilitate the ugf, and a mesh layer in between the lava rock and sand, so the sand doesn't sink and clog the ugf.

|Kai808||Welcome back! Very nice low maintenance scape. Are you still running the ugf? What kind of sand is that? I have some pool filter sand but it looks grey.|

I did lose the tiger shrimps. Don't exactly know why as the water params were pretty perfect for them. The few cherry shrimp that I put in the tank though are thriving.
As for the acrylic pipes, I bent them by filling the tubes with salt prior to heating the tube over a bend. The salt keeps the shape of the bend pretty well, although when the pipe is dry you can see the little indentations made by all the little specks of salt. However, when the pipe is wet and in use, you can't see this at all.

REALLY AWESOME TANK!!!!!
The hard scape and types of moss you have done are FREAKIN' AWESOME!!! Like others have said I have to keep reminding myself this is only a 12g tank! From the pics it could at least be a 72" 125g!
SORRY about the shrimp and the DAM CLADO!!! I have the clado in my 55g, and it is the shiznets! I would rather have BBA anyday!!!
So did you loose the Tiger Shrimp too?
Also did you bend the acrylic tube your self, and if so HOW??? I have seen it done with a fine wire spring that is a tiny bit bigger than the pipe, slid over the pipe to the place you want to bend it, then they used a heat gun to heat the pipe, and the spring kept the pipe from flattening while bending. BUT I don't see any "spring marks" in your bends!
Anyway I HOPE you find a cure to the clado, and I can't wait to see the fish in the tank too!
Again AWESOME JOB!!!

this is a beautiful tank meow. one of my most favorite hardscape on the site. the mix of DW and rocks is pure genius.
i think that a large school of cardinals would stand out in this tank. Add some color. BUT i am kinda partial to them seeing that that is what i have in my big tank. They just school so well.

I'm getting in Microraboras kubotai and Hyphessobrycon amandae soon. I think they'll look nice in this tank.
