I may have gotten a junky brand of sand, but some of mine ended up floating at the top of the tank, clogging up the filter. The "How To" Clean sand video I watched said to gently mix the sand up so all the particles in it would come to the service, but when I did that, it just caused a whirlpool of sand grains all over the top of the tank that did not settle. Then when I tried to take it out of the tank, it got stuck in the corners of the tank, and it was just a mess. I cursed up a storm that night. Lol, but I have low patience, so maybe that's why?

Yeah, I don't have that problem at all. I never had any float at the top. Honestly, I'm not even sure what kind of sand it is. I found it for 50% off at my LFS and grabbed it. I believe it was Eco-Complete sand, but I threw away the extra ferts that you're supposed to mix with the sand. If I need to use ferts, I'd rather know what I am putting in my tank. I got it for half off anyway, so I didn't care.

Here are 3 of my 4 tanks. The first is my 5 gallon bare bottom (but sand colored spray painted on the bottom, outside). Then my 29 gallon divided for 5 boys. And our 50 gallon with my 6 girl sorority and community tank

Thanks guys. I got the netting at Michaels. I didn't know if it was fish safe (shame on me) but I haven't had any problems with it. My female bettas love to hide under it, while the neons and cories zoom in and out of it. Haha
