Shark lived and I have since upgraded to a 55g.

Wow! I really love the aquascaping. I really like how you mounded up the black gravel on the sides held back with rocks and white sand in the middle. Very interesting. Are they all fake plants? Looks great.

Great vid too.

Yeah they are all fake.

Giving plants a go in my 10g and 20g first.

If all goes well I'll start to plant the 55g.

My new 250g will most def. be a planted tank.

Wow! When I saw that last picture, I actually said "woah" outloud. Haha.. Even though you started of rocky, you're finishing great! You started out with a 6 inch box and ended up with a 55 gallon tank! You're lucky you found that tank of CL. It's very nice and I love how you modeled it. How do you clean it without the sand getting every where?

dont add coral, it will boost you ph like mad. Also it will mess with your water chemistry and potentially leech salt into your tank.

Yeah, I plan on pulling it all out and upgradeing the lighting for real plants.

Just setup a 30g to mess around with plants. See how that goes.

Tank already looks pretty hot with fake plants. Maybe only sub in some live plants slowly and leave a lot of the fake ones in? Sometimes its hard to get a live plant to grow into the proper shape or direction.
