Just finished up with getting stand all worked out.



Here's the inside of the stand





Here's the cat litter I'll be mixing with the dirt





So tonight I'll start getting the dirt mixed with the cat litter, and some first layer pure laterite, then get it into the tank. Then I can cap it with 1" of play sand, then it's time to start the aqua scape of the tank, and putting any driftwood, rocks, etc......

Then tomorrow will be the final additions by adding the plants from my rimless 6 gallon edge into this setup, and then fill the tank and see what needs to be done with any of the aqua scape, and then get the filters running on the tank.

I've decided to use my DIY inline Co2 reactor w/ my DIY Co2 setup, it'll be used in junction with my Magnum 350 canister filter so it'll spread throughout the tank.
