    I call this a sand storm scape for I scaped it in a storm of sand. Added play sand, which I got for free from landscaper, to the left side. It created a sand storm even though I rinsed it 3xs before adding it. Thus planted plants in a sand storm by feel. Dosing with nutrifin bio-clear cleared it up in 2 days. Yeh,I didn't save any money using that sand. When I move plants dust comes up so the bio-clear will come in handy. Best cheap sand is pool filter sand from a pool supply company. Home Depot pool filter sand looks like play sand.

    Hopefully all will fill out and provide a good home for Apistogramma cacatuoides.

    Try some rocks, a little trimming and some foreground plants.

    I have Sags, Java fern and 4 leaf clover in there. Aren't they considered foreground plants.

    After buying another bulb I looked at the bulbs I had over the tank and realized that I didn't have the Zoo Med I had bought over the tank. I am not home now. Wondering what will be alive or dead when I get back. I may end up tearing the tank down when I get back. Fortunately have hardy fish in my tank at present, 5 platy and some 5 plecos. Thus it is not a problem to put them in my 10 gallon quarantine tank.
