It's gonna be a little while. I'm thinking about substrates and backgrounds. I have a good amount of tahitian moon sand, so I might go black with a spraypainted black background. But I have an equal amount of pool filter sand too. Maybe I mix the two?

*whines* are you TRYING to make me jealous?

I love TMS, currently planning on continuing that love into my 125, with a spray-painted background, when I get that far, lol.

I also have pool filter sand. It's soooooooo white. I really didn't prefer it in my tank over the TMS. Because I usually set up QT tanks using existing media, I've been playing with several ratios of the light and dark sands moved over from my other established tanks. I have found that I prefer it when there is more dark, less light sand in the mix - I disliked 50-50. I think I really am going to need a third shade in there if I'm going to be able to get over the salt and pepper feel. You might like salt and pepper! It drives me batty. All up to individual aesthetics, really. . . I might end up sticking to plain ol' TMS (leaning toward that) but still fun to experiment! I'm sure I can dig up some pictures of some tanks that have had mixes, if you'd like?

I like the sand in your tanks currently. I liked your moonlight sand, too. . . is the castle coming back?!

The moonlight sand is in the 29 I set in the guest room. It's housing the straggler fish I haven't gotten rid of yet. It DOES look nice.
