10 G betta tank with sand substrate?
I got a 10 gallon tank and put a fiberglass divider up. I'm still in the beginning stages of getting the tank up and running so I have time to plan or change things. The tank is for two Bettas, being split obviously, and maybe adding another fish or ghost shrimp. I was thinking of putting sand in. I never used sand before but always liked how it look. I was going to get play sand from home depot. So my questions are:
1. Is sand a good substrate for Bettas?
2. I know you have to rinse play sand, what is a good method for this?
3. How do you clean sand, I've always used gravel and a gravel vac?
4. I planned on planting the tank, do plants do well in sand?
Thank you very much, I appreciate your help. I don't mind at all washing the sand, keeping fish is a hobby of mine and I don't mind the work it comes with. Also I enjoy doing as much as I can on my own. I'm glad that my plan is coming together well then. I have a water wisteria I'm planning on splitting and adding to my new tank. I have liquid fertilizer and have invested in daylight bulbs, 6500K. I'm hoping that will be good to start off my tank. Also I have seen on youtube that a person, "TheBettaMaster" is his name, has a crayfish. Since I'm splitting a 10 gallon in half would it be bad to try and get a crayfish? Would 5 gallons be too small? I've heard they're good at keeping the tank clean. I'm also a big fan of Crustaceans; they're just so cool. Would ghost shrimp be a better choice?
