My only regret with this tank:
I wish I had dropped another 50$ to get this tank rimless (no longer the case!)

LOL, I understand, from what I have read you need to have some sort of border that would be obvious unless you had some plants growing over it.

Awesome growth and design.
Thanks!
I should have done that when I put everything in at the start but oh well....I place some extra new sand on top of the old river and it looks good for a week or two... good enough lol... too lazy now to tear everything apart. Plus having a plastic barrier = eyesore

My goodness this tank has come a long way and it looks AMAZING! keep it up! I really like the natural feel, and for me the rock in all the grass makes it, draws my eye first. I do think you should make it a little bit more visible IMO, but it looks great regardless. Those sailfin mollys help a bunch for algae, I just got one, works spectacular.
I never could get that pesky hair grass to grow worth a crap :-/

After a complete tear down......
Fishing lined the fissiden over most of the DW.
Kept a bit of DHG which I planted in random spots... growing well.

Thats about it really. Wish DHG would expand quicker.....

Just trimmed it
