No worries, i already took the stratum from an existing tank, and the water i took from my existing tank as well.

its 6x14, couldn't find an 8x14, that would be awesome. But for $5 from the craft store, can't complain.

I don't get any direct light, but lots of indirect light. I'm hoping its enough.

The Fluval stratum shouldn't release any ammonia, so it should be ok....especially if he added some floating plants.

I agree, but it should make more sense when my "collection" is complete.

Well unfortunately I still wound up getting a bacteria bloom, but one of the blue pearls is berried, so I guess its not THAT bad. Just hope it clears up soon.

change the water. this could likely use weekly water changes, especially at the start. can look very nice once its all grown out
