Today started my project 260L tank project.

Started planning out the tank partitions for the different substrates.
I shaped the perspex based on my rough sketch.

Tomorrow I will move the substrates into the tank once the marine silicon dries.

How are you keeping the sands separate? I'd love lighter sand or gravel pathway in mine.
I cut up some perspex sheets which I then sanded down and attached to the bottom of the tank with marine silicon.

I would recommend 20mm width on your cut as I ran out of substrates and had to go buy more.

All the substrate is down, so its time to prepare the rest of the decorations and plan out what plants to include in my tank.
