And the hardscape is done!!! Finally. It took me literally 12 hours to take out old sand and put in new substrate and level everything out and put in dividers to make the scape taller and then the rocks and wood but here is something closer to being done lol.

The plan is its going to be planted and filled tomorrow. Hopefully. I’ll be buying plants tomorrow so it has to be done tomorrow.

Also, dont mind how dirty the tank is i was too lazy to clean it off for pictures.

Edit: i really wanted to make this scape taller but my canister filter is drilled into the bottom of the tank on both freaking sides so that limited me.

“It’s shocking to think … that I could have been involved in taking anyone’s life – and my parents’ life… it seems unimaginable because it seems so far removed from who I am,” Menendez told ABC News during a recent phone interview from Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California.

“But I found that my own childhood prepared me surprisingly well for the chaos of prison life.”
