I think it's 1:20 on the bleach solution, but I've never done it. Another popular and supposedly safer method is potassium permanganate rather than bleach... either way, if you're interested in that...

Looks great so far, PeacockGoby. Although I'd think that is more of a riparium... What is that grassy plant sticking up out of the water?
