My hand in dirt.

Alright, might as well start a thread with the Edge I just got going with MTS.
Boy what a ridiculous process to get started, mostly because of my mistakes, and it took a while to finish; lets just say I'm an idiot. haha
I did have a question tho, how long does it take to start seeing ammonia levels when I test the water?
I'll try to get a cruddy picture or two up but its from a phone so don't expect much.

How long since you have it set up? I have a soil based that I just set up over the weekend and everything is at zero still. And pics or it didn't happen!

Alright here's the proof. I set it up this past Friday and I just tested it again today with no ammonia showing up. I did toss a small honey sunset gourami in there, should I not have done that yet? I do plan on moving it over to the 25 but I just wanted to see something in there for the time being.
I decided to leave the layer showing but I may come to regret it, I don't know.
Any easy way to cover it now or should I just leave it?
Random question. What are the two things that gouramis have? Like feelers? Seems like it touches everything that's possible to touch. Sand, DW, glass, plants, filter intake, even the trumpets.
So I've got the back of the tank behind the DW lined with DHG but I have no idea what to do about the front since I didn't plan on using these pieces of DW and my whole scape previously would've been way different.
Gotta use what you got right? Any suggestions for the foreground?
