Oooh i just had a thought lol. My sister has some plecos in a 60 gallon. Do plecos like sandl. They are quite large. I dunno how large,but they are. They are also in with an oscar,couple goldfish,small shark fish of some sort,some kinda fish that looks like a silver dollar lol. I know not that helplful in the name department but I dunno all the fish yet. Im sure she could use like a good portion of the sand in her tank. Thatd work out great haha. Just dont know if she is up for maintaining it. Heh. Well i could always still give her the bag and well its outta my hair! Lol. So just a thought. Im gonna go look it up now.

When I have ordered fish from fish stores I try to get a day and approx time that they receive their shipment. In this way I can be there and take the fish directly from the bag it was shipped in to my tank at home.This cuts down considerably on stress of fishes who only need to be acclimated once after shipping rather than twice. I realize not everyone can be there when fish arrive but it might be something to consider.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Do everything you can to minimize the stress on them. Pandas aren't the hardiest corys.

Hey, an idea just came to me! How about a large Rubbermaid container with a lid? I've heard other people say that they have used them with a heater and filter. Would that work?
