    40# White sand
    Bag of Eco Complete
    Few rocks and some plastic plants until I get a the real ones I want.

    Removed all the old decor and gravel added the eco and capped it with the white sand.

    Started to add the new decor along with the live plants that I have at the moment.

    The new light is 2 31 watt bulbs, I changed the acentic out to a 6700k bulb. This light puts me at 2.13wpg and I still have the dual t5no with 2 bulbs at 18watts on there but one is acentic. If you don't count the acentic total is 2.75wpg if you do count the acentic total is 3.37wpg. What category of pants should I be looking at?

    Thanks afro123 and showmebutterfly, I was surprised by how little the water clouded. It's completely cleared up now .

    I'm still trying to find all the plants I want, after the holidays we're going to go find some rocks to hard scape with.

    I really like the after pics a lot better

    Good job with the tank re-do
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thanks cliff, the before was the same crowded tired setup we had when it was previously setup. Really enjoying the more open approach right now, and looking forward to seeing it grow in later.

    Looked OK to me before you did the makeover, but the substrate makes all of the difference in the world.

    For the category of pants, I've be looking to wear something warm, pretty chilly outside today
