Bed of clean pool filter sand. Those WK stacked just like that. And some little critters swarming about.

Maybe even regular Cherry Shrimp. Or wild-type Neos so they don't distract from the plants but still provide life and movement.

You're giving me some ideas -- I just might flood this tank and use the Glosso bricks and these four Wabi Kusa as the only scaping materials. I'll make a poll.

I know where I can get PFS. I'm going to use some glosso bricks in addition to just these balls though, so I can have a little horizontal action. I agree that wild neos would be great in here, let me know if you can hook me up!

This is going to be a fun project, a true "instant aquascape" in action!

Thank you! I wish I could keep it. It'd be way to small though. That's a shame to hear... let me know if you want one that won't fail haha

It's been 24 hours, he's doing well. Going to try and release him this evening if it's not still a swamp across the street...

Lol guys, it's a Monday! Geez, hahaha

I'm following my own philosophy of work hard (school-wise), work hard (planted tank/business-wise).

Nonetheless I will be heading to Home Depot (or a pool supply place I know of anyway) within the next 2-3 days to get the sand; the glosso Wabi Kusa may need a little more time, though!

Think Friday-ish. Maybe

I got home, snuck upstairs, got on TPT, and had about enough time to checkout the SNS before my dad poked his head in and told me to get to the homework. Urg.

So, I got the sand. I have some seiryu stone I may use too. Here's the thing: my landline internet is down. Router got fried and the IT whiz is in SF for business

I might go ahead and set this up because I have a surprising amount of free time tonight. I can take photos or video and upload them tomorrow (hopefully!).

So, the question becomes: which would you guys like more, some nice photos or another timelapse video? I'm leaning towards the former...

Well guys, my Internet is back up! Anyway, I went with photos...

So I went a little overboard and did a little scape with some seiryu stones and 7 balls. Curious to see how you guys like it. Pics soon.
