I've got sand in my 86 gallon and I absolutely *love* it. Bob's a bit picky about sand cuz he uses UGF, which is a bit tricky with sand.

My tank took a few days to clear up. My cories absolutely LOVE it. I now feel bad I ever kept them in anything else. They munch up the sand, sort out the bits of food, and spit the sand out of their gills. It's sooo cute and they're so pudgy now!

Thanks All, I came in to work and tank has cleared up :) I washed each bucket full of sand probably ten or fifteen times ten to fifteen minutes per wash. It sucked but I do love the look. One more question... Should I rake or sift the sand all along or wait until fish are added to begin cycling? Again thanks to all.
