Sand is fun! I've used regular Home Depot Playsand in a small tank before, but the stuff is *very* fine. I would not recommend using it without spongy prefilters on all your filter intakes. It churns up into the water column fairly easily, but my multi's seemed to like it ok.vjl110 said:I'm thinking of converting to african cichlids. I read here that some people use sand.
what type? any product to recomment, Also, how do you clean the
bottom, does the sand get vacuumed out.
