Spent all day on this so hopefully you guys like it. Changed all of my ugly blue gravel in my rift lake tank to black sand and also changed the rock formation

I also have planted some Nomaphila stricta, crypto and the Java fern + anubias that was already in the tank

Hope you guys like :)

Looks really good! Just need to get a black background on now and it will hide all the wires and pipes :)

Yes good idea, now how do I do that with a corner tank full of water and fish?

👍

Over here, you find it at lots of different places...hobby supply shop, Walmart, even some of the bigger grocery stores have it
Any better kind of tape to use? As apposed to standard sellotape

I'd ask where you got the black sand, but if you are in the UK I don't think I can afford the shipping. Tank looks great.
