    Finally got the right sand from Marimoball, after a couple of washes the water was clear, I added to the tank and filled up with RO. Then I looked around the pond and found some umbrella plant so I sticked it to the wood with has some green sock moss on it ... will wait a few days to see how they grow out.

    Lee I am going to make this thread a sticky since you asked and there seems to be enough interest for this cool and ongoing journal/informational thread

    Now for the main plant, I wanted something that has nice colored flowers - So I went to a local garden and found these 3 bonsai, I hope that one of them will grow. First one is satsuki azalea, being soaked water to wash off soil.
