It looks nice and has some nice elements like the tree, the rock with the terraced levels, and the rest will need to grow and fill in. I also liked your approach to keep the water from clouding on the initial fill, good job.

Gorgeous! Why the use of bags and paper?

I think the bags prevented the substrate from clouding up when water was added.

Hi guys! Sorry was not able to open the net for several days. Thanks for all you comments. Paper keeps the substrate and especially the little glossostigmas from floating during water fill. The plastic bag absorbs the water pressure and floats as the water rises so the whole setup is kept from being stirred. A big, light plastic that could cover the whole set works best. But I forgot to bring one, so I used the bags instead. Still works for me!
