The goldfish were temporary they were to cycle I also wasn't sure what the 3d background would leach into the water. But the all survived until they got nibbled on, there is actually still one in there now.

Here is a link to a vid of the sand fall the sandfall is a bit of a pain it doesn't always work but when it does it looks awesome.

that is awesome!

 

So how does the sand at the bottom get recirculated up again? Black Magic or voodoo if you ask me ?:-)
