Past couple of days: Capped with black sand. Filled in with some trimmings from 40, 3 Anubias Nana and the 5 White Clouds.
I should have brushed the plants off, but here it is.
Going for the SE Asian tropical river look - but not an exacting biotope as I want to be free to play with diff plants/fish.
Eleocharis from the river -
Added Tanychthys last night- caught them way back in the corner doing this by morning. Got these guys as small unknown fry from a feeder tank at the local lfs a year ago- 15 of them for cycling a 29. They all lived, sold 10 back to the lfs a month ago.
