That looks good! Gives a nice earthy feel to the whole thing. :D How do you clean it once in the tank, like gravel or sand?

I donīt know what is the difference between cleaning gravel or sand .. But I read you must clean with a siphon.

With sand all you have to do is rake it to remove airpockets every few weeks and siphoning is easy because the dirt sits on top of the sand. Whereas in gravel the dirt gets stuck between the rocks and goes to the bottom, making it a pain to clean. That's why I like sand better hehehe...

But you could use a "pipe" wider and you wouldnīt have that problem. And if you rake the sand, the water turn cloudy and then the dirty is deposited on the leafs.

I can't find that for a reasonable price where I live X( Or I would have never changed the gravel.. So I could never get it clean and it always stank later. :(

I didn't have a problem with raking the sand actually.. I did it really really slow after removing the dirt on top lol!

Have you looked for akadama?? Itīs cheaper than Dupla Ground but you have to clean more times.
