Photo Caption: Here is a close up of the gravel bottom that shows what I was talking about in the description. The gravel bottom is sand that is used for sand blasting, then is lightly layered and sprinkled with larger river gravel to give it a natural look and texture to the bottom of the tank. The sand is about $12 for 50 lb bag, it took 2 bags for this tank but not all of the 2nd bag was used. Contact me if you are interested in how to clean this sand before you place it into your tank.
