theres actually ALOT of BB that lives in the bed of your aquarium, your tank is prob going through a mini cycle to balance things out, give it a week or so and everything should be good dont worry man levels dont spike or anything crazy your oscars will be okay~

and how do clean sand u just vacuum it and sooner or later u have to buy more sand

molliefan09 12-31-2009 02:53 PM

i dont vaccum my sand, when i do my water change i just stir it up and vaccum what comes up when i stir it. at most i may accidently suck up a teaspoon of the sand with every PWC

Just hover your syphon just above the sand and you will see the poo getting sucked up off the top of the sand. Sometimes a bit of sand will come up too but not enough to have to replace. After I've cleaned the sand I'll usually run a stick or my fingers through it to get rid of any air/gas bubbles.

but it will uncloud in week all yours guys clouded the first week

If you just added unwashed sand to the tank, it'll depend on your filter system: Some will clear that up in 1 day, others in 1 week. So just give it lil time and all will be fine :-)
