Sagat, my only problem is it's pretty crowded where the sand cap needs replacing. Even though the cap is messed up, the tank isn't cloudy or anything...the soil that was kicked up just settled right out. Like I said you can't really see the soil on top, I have black sand so it's not noticeable. I'll have to see if I can figure out some sort of tool to get the sand cap replaced how I want it without getting sand all overmy plants and stuff, lol.

Turkey baster. Pop the bulb off that sucker, stick it where you want sand and then drop it through the top :)

Good to know. I bought some more sand but like I said it's not really noticable and doesn't seem to really get cloudy or anything. Seems like it'd be more of a PITA to put a new sand cap in that spot, lol.

Thanks for that, aokashi! Now I don't feel so bad about my losing battle with the bits of soil that continuously show up on the sand. Of course, my corys don't help any...

Hey, Aokashi, what type of dirt did you use for your NPTs?
