oh yeah, thats the other thing- I have three kuhlis tat never burrow in te sand. my theory is that the mat of roots prevents them from doing so. prehhaps when i trim my rots both problems will be solved- they will burrow and oxygenate te sand, the the blackening wont be as bad and all the plants will be healthier with the added mixing of the substrate :D

the kuhli loaches at your LFS, ... the gravel the store was using, ... i'm assuming large gravel, large enough for the loaches to find paths through it, ... large enough that considering if the loaches found a tunnel of sorts.

finding a tunnel is different from digging to burrow.
