    I once did a 10g with slate. It worked out well. The wall in the back right corner had soil capped off with gravel. It grew in nicely.

    Looks nice! I’m thinking about using ceramic tiles, just not sure if the ones at Homedepot are aquarium safe lol

    I am selling some large, natural brown/tan coloured ones on craigslist for 5$. I would imagine they are aquarium safe as they are basically a fired ceramic product that is pretty inert.

    Hi
    I am new in this community

    here is my opinion, If bare bottom or adding tile? wouldn't be the same?
    I would rather have bare bottom, remember when you add tile at the bottom, you still have a small gap between the tank and the tile where might get dirty

    unless you are putting some areas just for decoration.
    here is a picture of one of my tank
