yes
you are supposed to regularly agitate your sand to keep gas from building up and killing your fish.

How often is regularly? I've been wondering the same thing, too

Hehe. That was funny. It was like he tried to peer over at the computer screen (he's on a little coffee table next to me). I'm sure he really appreciates it!

I know. I'd get quite the smackdown on TFK from Byron and a few others if I got one though.

Would you trade an African knife out for one of these:


LPS has them for $40. I bet LFS could get them in and sell them cheaper. Dunno. It's my favourite fish ever.

Elephant Noses? I think those need a single-species tank.....and muddy-sandy substrate with some weird food, they're really hard to feed, if I remember correctly.
