Post [buildlog] first tank 30g

hi everybody, i recently got my self a tank to get some nice piece of jungle into my living room

this is the first time im building something like this so im always happy about feedback and suggestions how to do things or what im doing wrong.
i most likely will have lots of questions which, but ive already used this forum and other resources extensively to get all the basic knowledge that i need, so i will be asking around.

got the tanks and did some leak testing, also wanted to see what the pump can do

found a nice log on a walk but not sure if its good to use in the tank

doing some landscape planning, the idea i have in my mind is to have the area where no styro is with water, but at this point i dont really know how to do that

some testing with foam. ive seen a youtube vid where really nice forms could be created by covering the foam with sand so this is my first attempt at this (heres the link )

covering the foam with sand

uaaahhhh i do not have enogh sand

oh no it doesnt stop to expand (this was fully expanded)

next day i removed the sand and found some really interesting looking structures below

i removed the borders and the foam that was not covered with sand and did some refinement of the structures, im really happy how this first version turned out. it will serve as the back wall but most likely will need some adjustments

so the next step will be to figure out how i construct the water area on the bottom and see how that back will fit into the pictures.
also i will need to figure out how the wood will be integrated. a lot to do and a lot of fun

hope you like it and i get some feedback
