Taking advantage of the extra depth in the UNS 60U, I created a buttressing structure of driftwood and moss (Vesicularia montagnei) to hold a steep embankment of enriched aquarium substrate against the back right corner of the tank. The front of the tank was furnished with cosmetic sand and round river rocks, along with a few dried botanicals to promote the growth of biofilms and accompanying infusoria for the livestock to feed upon. When I flooded the tank with water, the raised substrate embankment, taking up approximately a third of the tank, was still submerged by about an inch of water.
