I wonder where this writer got the idea that sand isn't good for rooted plants. I mean, I guess if it is a plant that requires iron, but you could use root tabs? http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/sand.php

My guys get their veggies in their food (handmade food). Squash and peas right now.
Spinach is good, kale, chard.. Darker greens (high iron) are best for them.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

It would not surprise me if a little live food is good.

MadMonahan, I'm sorry about your fish. We've all done that before. I hope they're doing better.

Sweet. Good thing I've been attempting to eat more veggies. These pudgys should help ;)
Hubby already came up with a "group name" for them. The Pudgy Gang. hehe

Just lost patriot, will have to take him back tomorrow. I just got him yesterday. Mr.Grumpy is barely hanging in there. Also got him a few days ago so if he doesn't make it I will have to take him back...

Sorry bout that Mad. You did everything you could. Sending healing vibes to the current ones fighting.


I'm prepping some of my sand and I can't remember if the sand I bought from PetsMart for Spike's tank acted like mud when I rinsed it. I tink it did :/

I just remembered that we're replacing the silicone. So the sand is gonna have to sit in a bucket :P

Do I have to remove EVERY little piece of silicone? Even if it is wedged into the tiny crack of both glass pieces?
