CARIBSEA sand QUESTION
Hello, i was wondering if you have to wash this sand. my tank has been running since april but lost all the fish and now i have nothing in there but running water so i wanna switch from gravel to sand. i was wondering also if im better off getting this instant aquarium sand or the supernatural sand which is the second link. im worried about the bacteria thing someone please help.
The first question for you to decide is, what sort of aquascape do you want when it's finished? The type of fish should determine the substrate to some extent. The second one sounds better than the first to me, my only concern is the colour; it says "creamy white" and light substrates are not good choices for the majority of forest fish in planted tanks. These fish do better with darker substrates.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
well i got the sand today i went with the one with the bacteria. it looks real nice and my tank is much lighter with the sand over black gravel.i didnt get the white sand i ended up going with the tan. its like the sand on the beach. it looks real good though. it was a tough decision there was so many colors.
