I am not switching filters, just the subtrate. It's the same tank, just new subtrate. I also use RO water for my water changes because of the horrible tap water at my current house.
I plan on doing partial changes to sand throughout the next few water changes over several weeks.
If I am to make the change to sand, how long should i let my sand sit in water before putting it in the tank? Also, is there a cleaning process for the sand before putting it in the tank?
thanks for all your help so far guys!!!!
