Otherwise, thanks! I think less gravel makes a huge difference (and there's still quite a bit in there that I'll remove on a more thorough water change) and, admitadely, the black sparkle felt looks good, too.

Looks good. Here's a suggestion. If your heater is fully submersible place it low in the tank horizontally a couple inches above the gravel so that it's less visible.

Thank you! It's fully submersible, and I'd rather have it horizontally. The package didn't say anything for or against that, but I wasn't sure.

I placed my heater the same way near the substrate and horizontially. Also I have some hardscape which is placed some what in front of heater also which helps to make it less noticable.
