Mirthrius- Thanks, I am hoping that it will grow in a little more eventually. I've never tried potting soil before, so it is a little bit of an experiment. So far I think I will keep the critters out, just in case. I've heard there is a breaking in period with soil tanks and I wouldn't want to kill any fish. Plus this thing is small, I don't know what fish would fit.

In other news, I decided the little filter was too weedy and put an old aquaclear mini that I had laying around. I really like the flow better. The stock filter dumped water straight down and seemed like it wanted to bore through the bottom of the tank. The aquaclear moves the water across the aquarium better. I am pretty happy with the change. I've been changing 90 some odd percent of the water every day or two b/c the driftwood is putting off some sort of horrid snot-fungi.
