New at sand substrate. Do I need invertebrates?
I just put this here because I figured alot of people with invertebrates have sand-substrate. I need to know if the sand needs
to be aerated (without haveing some kind of terrible diesaster). I have access to countless MTS for FREE if I need them. I already have about 2 in the tank. I plan to make it a guppy/endler's tank.
It is already setup and a good way through the cycleing process. It has about 1-2" of sand and NOTHING else except snails (I think my sick cichlid killed my Ramshorns before it died, I was useing the 5g as a Hospital tank, as my regular one was already in use).
I hate the power filter that is in there. It leaves a giant hole in the sand, and makes it completely uneven throughout the entire tank. I will need to go over to Bettafish.com (a branch of Tropical Fish Keeping) and read the sticky'ed article about baffleing a filter.
Do y'all have any tips or suggestions? I plan to have a fake coral in the middle of it as a centerpiece (I love SW themed tanks!).
