now some more pics because everyone wanted to know how i went with the sand
it was a little clumpy but actually easy to clean to my disbelief
it is great because the sand is heavy enough to not get sucked up by my filter which is a vitapet crystal clear 200L per hour
but to slow things dow i used some sponge
he has changed colour from a light blue to blue body, purple tail with red highlights.
the filter was $15
