    Thanks, the plan was just Lilaeopsis brasiliensis high up on the rocks so it kind of grows a bit emersed, tho not sure how to attach, I may try create some balls of soil in stockings or something and attach Lilaeopsis brasiliensis to the balls. I also have a bit of UG from the current 45p scape which I will try do the same. No plans to plant anything in the sand.

    Sounds good. Gobys will play on the sand anyways. The ball technique is definitely ok to do. Or small pots.

    Finally got around to clearing out the old scape from my 45p which is kept outdoors on my rack... change plans with the hardscape, the lava rock looked terrible with the white glue on the rocks and I couldn't remove it.

    Also after looking into australian desert gobys I read they want caves etc to live in, so I went with a couple of hollow logs, not exactly a aquascape but I dont mind the look. No plants yet only frogbit, also I think I will keep the water level at 1/2 or maybe 3/4, I read gobys jump and I dont want to tempt them with lots of bugs etc buzzing around the light outdoors, I may add Lilaeopsis brasiliensis high at the back of the big log so it grows emersed, that was my original plan and I think it could look good.

    Here is a photo, the water is still super cloudy from the sand which I didnt rinse. Water is at about 1/2, not sure if this will be enough water for 2 gobys (male and female) what do you gusy think?

    Also the logs are leeching tannins, i like blackwater but I am not sure if gobys do, do you think I should add purigen to clear the water or go with blackwater?
