Do treat AqAdvisor with caution, though - it's not 100% reliable.

I use regular old play sand. Occasionally i buy pretty aquarium sand, but play sand or pool filter sand works fine as long as yoi rinse it well! Certain sands are quite sharp-!i can't remember if tahitian moon sand is or isn't, but be wary of this and get something safe for your bottom dwellers

The one I use is pretty soft and my Cory's never had a problem with their barbels which is good :)

Oooo, silica based? They caused me problems before because I have low pH. I ended up having a TERRIBLE brow algae diatom break out. I tried for 6 months to get t under control. Changed everything short of the substrate. Once I did, it became much more manageable.

Are you talking the Tahitian Moon sand? If so, it's not silica based, at least not from any readings I've done on it. I also have low pH but I've never had problems with it.
