Fantastic :cool:

(and I see you read my mind and used 5 upright woods rather than the less aesthetic 6 :lol:)

I might consider trimming that leftover piece so it can be used half obscured in the sand area ... not sure on this in contrast to the more refined twisty wood
(in the left side “space” - though there may be rather less room than appears in the photo)

Yeh that left corner is only about 7cm x 5cm so not much room for anything, plus I want a bit of negative space with that wood flowing to the right and plan to have more small stone detail around that area

Nicely done :wave:

Though I find more dust comes out of my La Plata sand than Tropica Soil
(Apple had subbed “worms” out of La Plata :lol:)

I was checking out Glass Aqua for updates and found this video :cool:

@alto I've always rinsed la plata before putting it in so haven't had any dust issues with it

Since this is a rescape and fish need to go in quickly I've also had the amazonia soaking for about 3 weeks to stop excessive ammonia spikes and also rinse out all of the small floating pieces, still managed to get a light film of soil dust everywhere :thumbdown: but easily cleaned before sand goes in

Thanks @Paul Lane

Cheers @Jayefc1 yeh a mature filter should be able to deal with it but I'd rather just have that added piece of mind, a lot more stone detail to go in at sand level and some parva to plant as well
