Love that look! Very pretty tank. I love the look of sand. I am open to all different kinds of looks, but that is a favorite of mine.

I totally agree! I was going to say that I didn't really like it, but now that I do look at it, without it the tank would be really empty! I also love sand, and I had the exact same situation, with horrid colored gravel.

Very nice. I really like the display. It is refreshing to see somebody take a Guppy tank serious!
