I got a new 10 gal tank that im going to set up this weekend. I would love to get sand because i plan on getting cories and its cute watching them nuzzle the ground when its sand. My question is what kind of sand do i get?? I read that theres a sand that raises the pH which i deff dont want and i want some that has some color. (I saw someone here with black sand and I want that)
I got a bag of Eco-Complete that had the live bacteria in a packet. I simply chucked them and just used the sand. I did get it for 50% off so a 10 lb bag cost me about $6. Here's a pic of my tank with black sand. I love it and your cories will really stick out.
I just added 20 lbs of black sand to my aquarium and there seems to be like stuff floating at the top, it looks like fine sand or like little patches of black bubbles and gunk... i thought i had rinsed it out properly but maybe not.. so will this stuff fall to the bottom or am i gonna have to keep skimming the tank?
Well I forgot I even started this thread lol!! Im using pool filter sand and its incredible. Its heavy enough where if its disturbed it just falls back down. Even when im adding new water and i accidently pour the water to fast
