I have to say, I am so glad I switched over to sand, and so are my fish! lol

Enjoy!

Good looking tank and awesome looking sand but that sand will soon be full of poop and dirt and stuff that should not be there(from my xp it tends to clog faster than larger substrate).
Also sand tends to suffocate the roots(that only matters if the plants are real ...).
It can be kept clean but some vacuuming will be needed.
Good job none the less!

Sand can be done, and I never vacuum the substrate. Looks nice.

How thick is that sand layer? You have problems with compaction when it gets above 3 inches...

Stir the sand occasionally... The fish waste and such will eventually break down.

I tend to be fanatical about keeping my tanks clean. So I can't see the sand getting dirty. lol

It's 1 - 1.5in thick. Maybe 2 at the most. I know all about the risks with sand substrate. My fish are my priority tho, and my bottom dwellers are happiest with the sand.

Cheers!

I think she's also said that she has some Khulis which will help with some natural mixing. Win! Looking good.
