    Nice tanks.

    I like the sand in your 125. What is it?

    Thanks! It's natural red Repti-Sand. It was an experiment that didn't work out, I'm afraid - it was very fine and went anaerobic on me. I've since swapped it out for PFS.

    There is Tahitian moon sand. It is pricey, but it is nice stuff.

    I have heard of people using "Black Beauty" blasting grit as an aquarium sand.

    I'm digging the 75.

    I don't think the black 3M quartz is made anymore. M. Barber used to have the hook-up.

    I really like the 75! That rock pile is gorgeous! The 125 looks bare to me, but then again, my tanks always are the antithesis of bare!

    Yeah, the red sand really was a shame - I thought it was very close to that red dirt they've got over there. I had planned to make a Lake Kanyaboli tank, but the papyrus I wanted turned out to be very expensive. So I ended up just sticking a bunch of generic plastic plants in there.

    It looks a bit bare to me in that picture, too, now that you mention it, Holly. The tank was brand new when I took that. I've since added a stand of jungle Vals.

    Thanks to all for the kind words!
