Well I went out to the beach today in search of collecting some LS
. I really wanted to seed my 40 gallon even though I had already bought the Inland Aquatic LS
detrivore kit. Went out about 100 yards, dove to the bottom, and collected a cup of sand off the bottom. Sand was very clean and had a very fine particle size. I would say it was <.25mm.
It was a blue plastic cup so I couldn't see the side of the sand so I looked through the top but couldn't see any movement at all. I assume if anything was in the sand, it was probably buried down inside the cup.
I guess time will tell if it worked. Can you guys actually look at the sand in your tanks and see the animal life in it? It has been a week since I added the Inland Aquatic kit and I can't see a thing. I fed them when I first put them in and have fed everyday since then. I do have hermits and two fish in the tank so in feeding those guys, I would assume the critters would be able to get food as well. I guess it just hasn't been long enough for them to reproduce yet.
