Do you have an updated pic? I don't generally like bowfront tanks but I think they can look really nice if you do it up right!

Are you guys using a specific kind of light for your tanks?
My light gives the entire tank a yellowish look that I really don't like. Plus it removes some of the fishes bright colors. Because of this, I usually keep the light off and let sunlight from a nearby windows light it up.
Any recommendations for lighting?

They're what I use on my reef aquariums... A good 6.5k daylight color. If you're looking for good lighting for cheaper, you might want to check these guys out!

It will look better in a few weeks when the plants from behind the black rock start to fill out and get taller.

I did have the white fine sand but had problems with it in my 5gal as the fish would sometimes kick the sand and it would get sucked into the intake and sometimes cause the filter to get stuck...
Are those Java Moss attached to the drift wood? looks cool...I just recently tied some to some rocks...still waiting for them to grow...

Looks really good! But I think those plants that are planted are actually bamboo and they are going to die if you don't get part of them above water . Looks really good with those there though!
Yea I know. I read about that online a day after buying the plants. Kind of makes me mad, since Petco sells them as "aqua plants" for your "aquarium" and there is no mentioning of not being able to submerge them completely in water Seems like false advertisement to me. I havenít taken them back because I really like how they look. I think I'll just get something new when they start looking bad.

I think that depends on the texture of the rocks. I have some growing on some busted geodes that my boss brought back from a job site in Quincy, Illinois a few years ago. (I would love to get more of these, if there is anybody from the Quincy area who is willing to collect and send me some.) The texture of the exterior of the geodes is quite rough. I used rubber bands to hold the moss on. It has now attached well. I have been tempted to cut the rubber bands, but I don't want to accidentally rip the moss off the geodes in the process.
The moss that I have attached to the wood in the ten gallon is tied down in that picture. All the rest that I have is already attached. They stick pretty good. Except they don't stick all that great to rocks. The moss I had on the rock looked great but it fell off when I was cleaning the tank and is now the stuff in the 10 gallon. Oh yea almost forgot yes that is java moss. And anybody have any tips on how to trim java moss?
I haven't tried to trim it yet, so I couldn't answer that question. It's got a lot of growing to do before I even think about that.
