I use playlot and filter sand. Has anyone tried the all purpose or other sand with this fish? Nice color but I noticed the all purpose sand looked some what harsh. And what type of sand do people stay away from?
I haven't tried it, but as long as they can build their spawning pits with it, should be fine. They're not a delicate fish IME, that a certain type of sand would do them harm. I'd just go with what looked good to you. Now, if it's something with small pebbles, might be interesting, as they'd probably work to clear all of those out of their pit.
