Is this an acceptable substrate? It looks great. Will it harm the fish?
thats an interesting way of doing that..lol..I used lots of water to rinse ours. Basically half or 1/4 of the bag in a bucket, turn the hose on outside without nozzle, and shove it through the sand to the bottom of the pail, and let the bucket, which is tipped on a rock, slowly overflow. I move the hose all over the bottom of the bucket....this is with silica sand. xxbenjamminxx is using the stuff I wanted to try, but hadnt heard anyone else using it yet...lol...I will wait for his review :wink:Flippercon said:I clean all my sand with pillow cases. If its dusty I would to try to remove it like BillD said. With the pillow case you lose very minimal and you can just move it around with a hose running. I try to grab the corners and flop it back and forth while holding the open end of the pillow case. Never had any issues with cloudy water.
