Keeping sand moving isn't overly difficult, just have to poke it a couple of times a week with a stick or invest in some Malaysian trumpet snails to do that for you (they burrow).
River pebbles are very pretty, we had a bag of larger stones and I made a cave out of them by siliconing them together with aquarium sealant! They're versatile.
How beautiful! Ok, now you got me considering sand haha!
I just heard BeFoRe you put it in the tank its hard to clean....what type of sand do you recommend?
It won't clog the sponge filter?
Also, i am think about an aerator...would this give it sand some movement?
