Ok, so how often would you recommend I stir? What about the sand under rocks? And I can assume that I don't have to disturb the sand around the plants?
I am sad about the TMS being sharp - I thought it would be better than what I have now for my cories, which is Flourite (ouch!). So, I guess I would be better off going with 100% Eco Complete? It's just so hard to gravel vac without sucking out all of the "extras" that make it so expensive. But if the cories will like it better...
I don't suppose there is a black sand that is not sharp and provides buffering? If so, please let me know.
