Wow the pics are just getting better. The tank is exquisite!!

I can see how you would have a rough time keeping the tank BB you seem to have a lot of stuff on the bottom of the tank and against the tank back wall. Was this making it hard to keep things clean?? How are you finding the sand and how much/what type did you put in. I'm curious because I'm trying to make the BB/DSB decision on my upgrade (54"x36wX24h)
