Do you have to do anything different to clean the sand or just with a filter when you do the water cahnge. How does it do with hiding fish leavings and food? Does your snail do good at cleaning the bottom?

if you use a vaccuum you just have to be a little more gentle so you dont suck up all the sand.....no my snail SUCKS at cleaning the bottom, my ghost shrimp and cory do all the dirty work....my snail is spoiled i usually hand feed him

its easier to vacuum gravel than sand. Its a little harder. I personally think it would be easier just to ram a gravel vacuum into the gravel instead of trying to pick up poo floating on the surface of the sand. Many people use sand because they have fish that will hurt themselves on gravel like cory catfish.
