A surprisingly decent picture coming from me. Maybe I'm learning. I left the plate in there to so everyone how I filled the tank up. I have to say I'm extremely happy with the TMS. You can see some cloudiness from air bubbles. What you can't see because it's not their is cloudiness from the substrate. Oddly a tiny bit of sand floated in small groups on the water. I literally mean on the surface of the water, not the water column. Touching it was enough to send it right back to the substrate. I like the looks,like the ease. Good choice Jes!
I realize I still have to plant, so my feelings could change, but this is the first time I've gotten even this far in a tank setup and have been happy with the looks. Normally I'm beyond frustrated by now. This time I'm ecstatic.
Picture isn't as good as I thought.
