My 55 gallon tank journal...

This is what we started with...


I'm changing it over to a soil and sand substrate, I'm using organic miracle grow potting mix and white pool sand...

Washed the sand this morning...


I've had my driftwood soaking in hot water... Been flipping the one piece since it sticks out...


Put the sand and soil in the tank and 2 caves... (I'm not done)


and now I'm taking a break lol
