I bet that sand washing took a while. Looks good though. I use BDBS in all my tanks. Currently setting up a 40 with it.

Thanks a lot. It was a lot of work wow. It takes so much substrate to cover this big of a tank lol. 90gallons was my biggest before this one. Rinsing it all was a pain. And yes it took probably a couple of hours. I really like how bdbs looks, I was a little hesitant but after scouring the internet I decided it seemed safe. So far so good.
