I couldn't find any good sand here in this little Alaskan town. I was going to use creek sand or glacial sand, but then my LFS
owner told me it would decay in 2 months. So, I decided no sand. Then he gave me 40lbs of white sand he wasn't using any longer!
It's gorgeous! I am so happy! The sand is in my daughters community tank and the kuhli loaches and corydoras are so happy
This tank has been changing over from my 10 year old son to our 14 year old daughter. So, a lot of things are changing; decor, background, substrate ect. It's tons of fun to see the transformation from "his" to "hers".
We will be adding more java moss, Corkscrew Val, and floating plants...unsure which kind as of now.
What a difference this tank has made from skulls and gravel; a cluttered mess, to pristine and simple. Love it!
