So, I've had half attempts in the past, gave up the hobby for a few years due to work and life commitments, but now am giving it a go. Appreciate any and all comments, advice or criticisms.

Seiryu Stone - like a tonne!
Co2 Pro tank from my attempt 4 years ago
Inspiration after months of following the work of a few of the PT members, and the result will be combination of quite a few, plus Amano etc etc.
1 - have already had Amazonia in the tank running for a week, and will be using the LA Plata Sand in the next few days. I notice quite alot of clouding if i disturb the Amazonia, so would it be best to syphon out the areas where I'll be placing the sand as opposed to moving it with a shovel/spoon?
2 - Do i need to use plastic card to separate the sand and soil?
Setup initially a week ago:
Tried working on scapes using a towel that fit the dimensions of the base.
great in theory... very different when in the tank and working with Amazoinia soil.
lets just say it was a long night!!
