    Will do, Hardy...I smoothed it out with a spatula, just to see what my average depth would be with one bag...I've heard of the sloping method towards the back from others here, what does it accomplish, exactly?

    sloping toward the back will make the tank look a bit bigger and deeper front a front view. So it's a visual issue, nothing more

    yea, just adds a little depth, nothing major, maybe 1/2 - 1" difference in front to back

    Also, a paint brush works great for smoothing out substrate

    L00ks g00d, Slap. an0ther step cl0ser.
    I figured the sl0ping thing was "stadium seating f0r plants".
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!

    Thanks guys...I meant to take a pic of the rigs I have set up for soaking my driftwood...one long piece is in a kiddie pool in my shed, weighed down by bricks...the "stumpier" pieces are in a tote, with a Coke flat and then a cinder block to hold them under water...nothing fancy, but hey, they can't float!

    Not only does it gives each plant a better view but it makes the tank a bit easier to clean because all the debris will fall to the lower part of the slant. The difficult part is keeping the slope when your fish are constantly flattening it out or in my case, digging holes.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    That makes sense, thanks HB1...which fish tend to stir up sand substrate the most?...or do most of them do it, once they figure out that they can?

    Well, my fish are cichlids and they are digging pits for fry. I've heard corys will wreak havoc on a nice sand slope.
