"sand box"

I was thinking of burying a shallow glass dish of sand in the gravel my 30g (high) floor - because I have heard ghost shrimp and kuhli loaches appreciate a little sand. What sort of maintenance problems would I then have to look out for?

Thanks,

Jonathan

hi
you would just hover over the sand with the gravel vac,to
keep the surface clean,however you need to stir it on a regular
basis to stop it getting Anaerobic pockets.

Be aware that the sand probably won't stay where you want it. May or may not be maintenance-concerned depending on whether or not you care about sand mixed with your substrate.
