Do you put something between the sand and the flourite? Thinking if not then the two might end up mixing together later down the road which would be a mess. I like the idea through and should look nice.

Eventually it might mix there is no fish in there i just like to rescape my tanks I am retired so it keeps my hands and mind busy.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile,
a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Is your sand blue? It looks white in the first pics but then blue in the next. I love it, I'm trying something like that in one of my 10g but it looks no where near that good.

AH that my secret just kidding I found that at Petsmart the other day. It is from those zoo people the ones that make reptile stuff forget their name. I seen it there and just happened to read the back it has no artificial dyes in it and they say its 100% safe. I do not have fish in there so it does not matter but I wanted to be sure in case I add fish.
