    Finally I managed to take out the rocks that were holding the wood in place, and it looks like this (Day 33) :

    Still I have some white slime here and there on the wood , but it will pass in time.


    The plants are starting to grow slow but well.


    In conclusion everything goes as it should. :)

    Does the sand cap well over the aqua soil? I love the look but wonder if everything will eventually mix or the sand end up in the bottom after planting/pulling/replanting.

    My tank thanks you. :)

    The sand is not mixed with Amazonia and will never mix up because they are separated with that wall of rocks.

    Hi guys ,


    I changed the sand with ADA Colorado Sand and I put some new species of Bucephalandra.


    All is going well for now.
