In the sand, it took my 5 seconds.
I love the look of sand! Do you need a filter to have sand?

My Betta's tank

PS- does anybody have any thoughts on what type of plant this might be. My first initial though was Hygrophila polysperma, but I just wanted to check with you guys

I'm not really sure. I don't think you do. Hopefully, someone else would chime in.

The larger the tank, he easier it is to clean. Mainly because you can add live plants and they help in cycling and keeping the water quality up.

I don't think its necessary to have a filter if you have sand. I have a filter in my sand aquariums, but that is because I think its good to have a filter. You actually have to be careful with some filters and sand. Sometimes, the ones with internal motors can get sand particles stuck in them and shut down. So you have to wait until the sand settles before turning it on. As for initial sand cleaning, just keep rinsing. Rinse that sand in a bucket about 9 or 10 times, take a break, then do it 5 more times and the tank shouldn't get cloudy. I have had three tanks with sand, and find them easier to clean than those with gravel.
