i will be the first to leave the comments i really like the look of the white sand i think it stands out over any other sort of substrate ....maybe a few more plants and some rocks and driftwood i think u would have a nice looking tank

I would also add that you should have your sand be no more than 2 inches in depth to avoid creating anaerobic pockets of deadly gas which are created by the decaying plant roots. Also try a little flourite substrate (about an inch deep under the sand where you are planting) and it will provide your plants with valuable nutrients.
