Dawn, Thanks for all the great advice. I'll surely get some pix posted. Probably I'll start with building the stand, then go from there.

Don't want to change the topic completely...but are you completely settled on hard water and mollies? If not, a 55 full of convicts could provide a damn good fry factory for feeding your bushfish.

It's not so much that I am settled on the Mollies as 1) Convicts and Plants aren't as good a mix and I do like a planted tank and 2) I have a friend who breeds really high grade black mollies who I could surely buy a dozen or so from.

I've had a lot of luck with play sand and plants. I have like a billion MTS though, and they do a really good job of stirring the sand up. It's def a bit more maintenance, but I haven't had any issues around sand and my filter, and I really like it.
