Ugh, I am really tempted to try some sand in my 2.5 gallon MiniBow. I just have my lil girlie betta in there, Luna. I have some gravel right now, but I don't know if I like how it looks now? I'd really like some nice, cheap white sand. I think that'll look great with my decor. (1 spongebob cave, 1 red silk plant, 1 green silk plant, and 1 green plastic plant.) Does anyone know if Petco or Petsmart carries very cheap white sand? I really want to try this! Or is it a bad idea? I don't know, but I'd really like to try... gravel is so messy!
Also, I don't know if it matters, but I have a heater and filter in the tank... filter's really gentle, it shouldn't disturb the sand right?
