Nice tank!! I love the orange plants with the sand and the rocks. Are those rocks part of the background or in the tank? Either way it looks great! What do you have in there for fish?

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Its part of the background. I have some silver tipped tetras in there and a some male guppies, also a baby chinese algae eater, he's only in there for the time being when hes a bit older hes going into a bigger tank with bigger fish who can stand up 2 him if he gets agressive :)

What kind of substrate is that? Looks too small for gravel but too big for sand.

you don't see orange aquarium plants too often, it reminds me of fall.

I think I've seen something like it used in a child's sand box. Small enough to scoop and play with but without the sticking of sand. I'd love to try and use it in my tanks.

I love that substrate! Where did you find it?? It looks much better than the white play sand I used in my tank.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I am going to guess pool filter substrate. makes good aquarium substrate!

Also. I love your plants and bridge decor!

Changing my 30gallon freshwater tropical. Into a aggressive fish tank.
