Ok, so I'm planning on switching to sand in at least 2 of my tanks. Here are my questions:
1.) What size should the sand 'particles' be? Like, what is the smallest recommended?
2.) Other than aquarium sand, what else can you use? I've heard pool filter sand, I just can't seem to find it anywhere. What about 'play sand'?
3.) The amount of sand in lbs should be equal to the gallons right? (i.e. 20 gallon tank needs 20 lbs of sand?)
4.) Is sand safe for snails?
This will be for my cray/shrimp tanks. If it's safe for snails, I'll switch them to sand as well. Hoping to get this done tomorrow before work, or if need be do some before work, and the rest after. Already went out and got some nylon pantyhose for this (I don't own any...not much of a dress person lol)
