No, I bought eco-complete substrate. It's a black gravel with like minerals or w/e (cant think of the name) for plants (sadly it's quite expensive :/ but it's really the only nice looking black gravel I can find... and it's good for plants!). I did however use the playsand in my 5g tank. I put 7 platy fry and they are all doing just fine in there. :) I think it looks ok, but my mom didn't like it so she made me get the black substrate for my 44g. Anyways, the play sand seems fine to me in the 5g. I have some rotala indica. Not sure if the babies create enough Co2 and waste for it. It's barely grown... but I recovered it from my tank that the algae got out of control on. >_< so ya.

These are the rocks I bought, and here is the light.

Hope it is the right one.... also I hear something move around in the bulb, but it turns on fine. Is it ok?
