this is my first true "sand" substrate tank.
So how do i vacuum the sand without just sucking it all out? Seems like it doesn't just fall back down using Python hose like gravel does?

It can be a little tricky, you have to find just the right height above the sand so you suck up the poo, but not the sand. You can try pinching the hose a little to reduce the amount of suction.

Check out the video in the library for a visual. I stir the sand with one hand and hover the Python above the surface with the other.
