    As always, Chick, your 'tats are truly incredible!!! :kissflowers:

    I love how you divi them up into areas.  I just have the sand side and the EE side, divided by plexi, in all my 'tats.  I'm starting to get bored with that.  I am really thinking that with my next deep clean (it'll be the 40B), I want to try a few of your ideas, like gravel or coral under at least one of the water pools......my water pools ALWAYS look dirty, it seems.

    So, I have a few questions for ya~~~~~

    1.  In the 1st pic of the 40B, the shell area, what type of substrate is that?  Looks like repti-mulch maybe?

    2.  In the 2nd pic of the 40B, what type of substrate are the water pools sitting on?  Looks like you have them seperated from the rest of the tank with plexi.

    3.  When you use the crushed coral under your water bowls, do you take that coral all the way to the bottom, or do you use the coral on top of another substrate?

    4.  Is that live moss you have in there, and if so, where did you get it?

    5.  I also like the net strung in the 20L.  Is that fish net or a hemp thing?
