First pics: 180g Geo planted tank

Finished setting it up and got the fish from a friend today

The wood is Manzanita, it's covered with moss, Giant vals in the back and Melon Swords in the black lava rock setup.

I really enjoy the lighting of that tank. Is it set up on an angle or something, one leg in back the other in front?

In any event, I appreciate how it kind of leaves the sides of the tank darker . . . it makes 180g seem even bigger, if that's possible!!

What kind of sand?

And are you willing to ship the wood?

Ernie, the lighting is my 4 foot strip, but because the tank is open top, I can't set it straight. IT's temp. until I get my hanging fixture.

The sand is 3M Colorquartz S-grade (super fine) Buff color. Very natural looking sand.

I can ship driftwood, depending on whether you want to pay for "Oversized" shipping, as they are 4 foot pieces.
