Hmmm never thought of that :) most of my bettas if they nom on something NOT food (grain of broken gravel, poop, anything really) they spit it out xD but I guess sand would be harder to spit out.

Sand is fine-but without live plants I wouldn't go much over 1inch deep...fish generally can tell the difference between something that is eatable and not and will spit it out......
I use play sand on top of dirt in all my tanks with a lot of live plants...Natural planted tanks-you can see pic in my album....not a system for everyone.....but I like them and they work well for me....

Can you get a picture of the top of his head? I am guessing it is like a couple of my rescues, who have scales missing on the top of their heads and it's healing over.
