I am just in the process of setting up a FW
tank using play sand. I plan on a female convict chiclid & small goldfish from my outside pond as occupants.
I started the tank last Ssunday & feel I should have taken the time to rinse the sand!!
I have 2 hob
filters running all week & have taken them out each evening & rinsed the dust out of them & the filters.
Today I moved my first fish in--the female convict & 2 goldfish. The golds are having fun picking up a mouthful of sand & spitting back out. So they are mucking it up again!
I also have a 12inch airstone bar in the tank.
