Wow long overdue update. Well the tank is empty now waiting for the new scape. Comming this week. The other 120P will be a plant grow out tank for now.

So the tank is empty except for the bottom layer of powersand and aquasoil. Powersand is pretty pricey now. The aquasoil held up very well after 3 years. It is still solid and does not crumble. I have no scientific proof but I believe the powersand and ADA additives kept the substrate healthy. In comparison to smaller tanks I have set up with aquasoil only and no powersand and ADA additives, the substrate just desintegrates to dust.

Here is the 120P grow out tank. Its now planted with plants lined up in rows. No scape.

Beautiful hardscape! Where do you find such pretty rock?

How are you planning on keeping the AS separated from the sand? I've seen sand foregrounds get covered in bits of AS and look a little unsightly after there are occupants moving things around a bit, so I'm curious what people do to try to prevent that (if anything).
