setting up a 29 gallon freshwater w/sand
I have a new 29 gallon tank and I decided to go with a sand substrate. My question is this: how do I prevent the sand from getting sucked into the filter and jamming the internal workings? I think I remember hearing something about a piece of pantyhose? (and if i'm WAY off, please correct me). Any advice would be appriciated because while the sand LOOKS fantastic, im not willing to risk ruining my new filter because of it.
