GET SAND! plants grow a lot better in sand, looks better, fish cant hurt themselfs. when u clean ur sand u put it in a bucket and poor water in, stir, drain, and repeat until the water ur porring out is clear. its not that hard to clean, just drag ur hand ifront of the vacume to stirr up the sand then vacume over it. u can get the white sand from almost any online pet store, type in aquarium substrate for sale on google and you should find some places. good places: dr foster & smith, petsolutions, that pet and fish place.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

i personally got my sand at home depot. its the sand thats called "play sand" for use in childrens sandboxes, i rinsed it till it went clear, i love the way it looks, i think its easier than gravel because once u suck up the debris u actually SEE that its clean, with gravel ur left wondering if u got it all. my plants are thriving in the sand as well.
