I really like the scape! Welcome to the forum you did a really nice job on this tank. Im trying to scape two 20gals right now. I can only hope my tank will look that nice. I like the moss in the white sand. How long has this tank been running?

Looks like a great start. I really like the marimo balls in the sand, it creates a nice effect. Keep it clean and healthy and its going to be awesome when it grows in.
