because I spent about an hour straight just churning sand in a 5 gallon bucket....I'm up in Philly and it's too cold to use a hose....so I had to strir the sand up with my hand while cleaning it.

Pictures should be on tonight I hope!!

It looks really good! Nice job on rinsing the sand, the water looks clear to me. I think some real plants would look very nice in there

I've never really ventured into the real plant thing, although I would really like to. I'm setting up a 55G in a month or so and may just wait to do it then.....My tank is so clear now it doesn't even look like there is water in it!!!!

Thank you everyone for all your help! Now I can help other people on the topic!
