I am planning on changing my sand from petco brand Blue sand to
Super Naturals Black sand.
Does changing the Substrate count as a water change?
Take out all the bottom dwellers and fry
Drain half the water or water it takes to suck up all the old sand
Then replace with Super naturals black, new sand
Usually it takes about half the tank to get all the sand out, and I would not be deep cleaning my filter.
SOO DOING THIS TOMORROW!
