Actually, it was the photos of your play sand-bottomed planted tank that inspired be to do my next community with sand. Plus, I want a herd of kuhli loaches and I've heard they really like burrowing through sand.

I don't need any more snails just yet as I don't really have room for more bioload stress in any of my tanks and it'll be a while (a month or two maybe) before the next tank is cycled and ready for inhabitants.

Hey, awesome, glad to hear that! Sand is *so* much fun. I didn't realize what I was missing out on until I saw my cories playing in it when they moved in. They sift bits of food out of the sand and then spit the sand back out of their gills, it's so cute!! Plus, their barbs have gotten so long and healthy, and the cories are all so fat now! Your kuhlis will certainly be happy with it.
