Worth the effort. I did the same in my 125 and my 72 and I don't regret the decision. IMO sand looks better and it's easier to clean

Yea it is a pain. Shouldn't be bad with a 10 though. My timing to do my 125 couldn't have been worse. About a week after I changed it one of the corner seams had a complete blow out. So I get a call at work from the wife telling me my tank is flooding the house. So had to completely empty it again to take the tank apart and reseal it.

This happened last night. My new Bolivian ram is learning to eat flakes. Added it last Saturday and the resident black skirt tetras have taken it under their wing, they are inseparable. The ram will rise almost to the surface and catch all the falling flakes. The surface is a bit wild with the Rasboras and black skirts. But I bet it's only a matter of time before it will be joining the fray at the surface. As for my other Bolivian ram, no interest in flakes what so ever.

I am so sorry for your loss, that is horrible and I would have never thought that could happen. Thank you for sharing so we don't use them.

Did a pwc on my 72 added 2 crypts and 2 green Wendti and 3 more bolivian rams, making 5 total. Oh and a jungle Val. The LFS by me is closing tomorrow so I got everything for like 10 bucks.
