yeah, i do have a some, i got a little over enthusiasic when getting it and ended up with a rucksack full. Trust me, a 4 mile walk with a 45 litre rucksack full of slate ain't something i'm gonna be doing again in a rush! It looks really diferent wet. Maybe the LFS would let me dip it in a tank, or run it under the tap...
Also, i'm rather poor at the moment and i've heard of people using play sand as substrate, my local Argos has 15kg for Â£2.50 which is much more my sort of price, and it's an ok colour - anyone know any problems with using this stuff?
And how do you clean sand best? Won't it just get sucked up the tank vac into the bucket?
And how about bofore it goes in, any good methods for rinsing it out without loosing it all own the sink?
Sorry for the flurry of questions, i just wanna make this tank really nice...!
