Is there any depth to that dirt, as in will it be able to grow grass or moss? Background textures look great too!

i need to have an electrician come out to tie in the dedicated 20amp circuits for the tank, carbon reactors for the filter, automated rain system (going to try to grow dandelion on the top portion), Lighting automation and a few other things im probably forgetting lol. im in the final stretch though for sure. :D :mrgreen:

You'll need to post a little video of your setup when it's done!
