Gravel or Sand????
I have a 29 gallon tank for fresh water fish. I am useing gravel and sand. But would rather stick to one kind. My question is, Which do you perfer??
If i stick with gravel should i stick with natural color??
I prefer gravel, and I have black, but my grandmother had blue, so I don't think it really matter, but my fish are certainly happy. :D
I have three mollies. A male and female dalmation and a black female.
Hmmm gravel and sand? Hows that working out for you? Like you mean.. Mixed together?
Personally I LOVE sand, it looks wonderful, some nice black sand!!! But sand also requires a little more care then gravel because you have to stir it up to avoid dead spots.
And gravel is just easy to clean, but I do like the more natural colours of gravel rather then the brightly coloured stuff.
It WAS working out pretty well. But the other day i did a water change and stired up the sand and gravel and now my nitrites and nitrates are off the wall.
It looked really nice. I had the white sand red and blue gravel. But i wanna just start over and stick with one kind.
in my 29 gallon i have gravel... but i LOVE the way sand looks. i think either would be good. if you get gravel i would stick to natural colors....i just think it looks better.
What fish do you have? If you have cories or loaches I would go with sand. Otherwise gravel is easier to vacuum. I like natural colored gravel.
You should really be vacuuming your gravel every time you do a water change. You probably sent the nitrites and nitrates off the charts because you have sooo much crap all stuck down there.
But I vote sand, unless your not down for the extra care, and then in that case natural coloured gravel!!!
I think i am up for all the care that sand needs. I do have a pic. I will have to look for it.
I didnt relieze i could use a vacuum with the sand until the other day when i asked the question here.
I do have a cory. He is retared but i thinks its becuase i dont have more of them.
I do have alot of fis and looking to get rid of some of them becuase i want to go to a guppie tank.
Well found the pic. I tried adding it but it told me it was too big. So if you would like to see a pic just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
