Do you like your sand?
What kind is it?
I like the indo-black Pacific in the 30 gallon hex.
I don't like the crushed coral in my 100 gallon FOWLR but it was in there when I acquired it and so I let it be.
My bed isn't deep enough, grains are too big and I don't know if I like white, pink or black sand. I have the white now.
its sorta mixed large and small agaragrate...the small sifts through the big...and the big isnt at white as the small
I hated it! We have been slowly removing it to go bare bottom & love it now
Cody how bout a picture?
I like mine... its seachem. dont remember the exact name though. but its very very fine white sugar sand. almost too fine, talk about a sand storm when you put it in. got about 40lbs of it in the 20gal
Here's the 100 gallon, I can't get a good pic of the sand right now, its just not working But it's very uniform and seems to collect detritus a lot more than anything I have seen, it doesn't move much unless you have some effecient sifters.
Here is the 30 gallon, close up of the sand with a conch and a full tank shot, its nice contrast and is constantly moving with a single goby and single conch , the sand seems to settle on its own, not like the coral sand in the 100g.
I'll try and get some better pics up to show what I'm talking about, I don't know if it's good to be that loose or not but the burrowers like it and the damsels make caves under the liverock as they feel.
