Default 10 Gallon Low Tech - Take Two!

Well after realizing my 10 Gallon Tank had a slow leak, I decided to try a better aquascape on this endeavor.

I am using a 10 Gallon Petsmart Kit. I replaced the bulbs with 15 watt 6500k spiral lamps. I added some pebbles and a nice piece of driftwood.

What do you think of the scape?

First I added a pile of sand where the rock pile was going to be. I did not want the top soil to be under a big pile of rocks and driftwood....

I then filled in the remaining area with sifted EarthGro Top Soil (.75"), capped with .75" of sand.

I included a close up pic of the Driftwood....
