I read you can use play sand also. That kinda freaks me out though. Lol I can't say for everyone in Michigan, but at least I have enough common sense to have questioned that suggestion. Lol I used to keep freshwater and had under gravel filters. Definitely pretty gross under those suckers! I'm still not sure what I'm going to do. Is pool filter sand expensive? The LFS
charges $3.50/lb. Not sure if that's reasonable.
Oh and I just picked up the tank, it's actually a 75 gallon bow front! Pretty excited lol I'm going to need to re-seal it though. I read on here somewhere that GE 1 window and door is ok? I thought about just paying a professional lol my brother inlaw tried and failed miserably to seal it and gave up after one try. Lol I have patience but I'm not sure I trust myself with something this big.
