Isn't the Sunset Gold fantastic? Not only is the color fabulous with those black specs, but it's so soft and smooth! It's my new favorite sand.Very Happy

In the tub pic the red plant looks like a Rotala species, maybe R. indica. In the photo with the heater, the green plant looks like it could be Bacopa, probably B. caroliniana. We don't know your location, so between that and the pics, it's hard to say.

It all looks good, though.
Very Happy

yes. it is amazing. I love the color because it isn't to light so it still brings out the colors. and its not black so it still has that natural feel/look. I would recomen it to anyone.
and thank you for the comments I really do appreciate it.

This seems like a lot of sand for a 10 gallon tank. I have a 75 gallon catfish tank with 35 pounds of regular play sand. I sifted the sand before use so only the very finest particles made it to the tank. I would say my brown sand is the same texture overall as your Sunset Gold, yet you have 40 pounds in a 10 and I have 35 pounds in a 75.

True, I have a shallow layer, only 2 cm (three-quarters of an inch) for Corydoras.
With a sand bed as deep as yours I definitely would NOT add any digging fish. What is your maintenance of this sand bed? Do you pierce it? Lightly stir the top? Stir down about an inch, in case you were wondering.*lol*

Good news about your big ghost shrimp still living! Like we said on the other thread, maybe a couple more BIG ghosts would be a good "clean-up crew" in your tank.
Very Happy

yeah I'm happy about the ghost shrimp Very Happy and the sand bed I was trying to make a slope and it didn't wok to well so I just left it like that. sometimes with water changes ill go down about an inch. but I'm still rearranging plants so it get blown around lot to. so why should I not have digging fish? is it because of gas bubbles?

this tank is going to be taken down because its to hard to breed them because I don't want to mess up the plants. I will be resetting it up with only java moss and peat.
