Hello all! I bought some Tahitian Moon Sand since it was recommended by a few users, and I'm curious if I can use my gravel vacuum the same way for sand.
Another question: should I use only sand, or should I have sand with a layer of gravel on top? I'm thinking of adding African Dwarf Frogs to...
I have an Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Aquarium Gravel Cleaner (<--Verbatim) and after using it, I typically rinse in cool water and hang it up to dry. I then rinse it again before using it to siphon out water.
Question: Do I need to sanitize this thing, or is rising it enough?
I'm a newbie with a 6-gallon tank. It's the Eheim Nano--only about 10 inches square at the base and a little over 12 inches tall, so there's not a lot of gravel, but I will need a vacuum (the tank is still cycling for now).
Having never even used one I have no idea what to shop for. I'd love...
Simple question- should I use a gravel vac and scrub algae while the tank is cycling? I have just a little bit of growth on the side of the tank that gets the most indirect light, but I know the bacteria grows on the tank walls.
