    I tried to put texture deeper spots of sand in my tank but corys and hormoanl rams rearanged it for me. The rams dug a tunnel under drift wood. It is cool looking to see the and the corys swim throught the spot.

    Hahahaha

    You guys. I always try to keep my substrate amused, the laughing motion expels any gas leaving it nice and safe. Do you experts not know to make your substrate giggle??

    I SUPPOSE you could always jiggle it around instead -_-
    Special thank you to mommy1, KevinVA and slaphppy7 for all the help, it has not been easy!

    I used black sand in my 30 gallon and I like it but if I had it to do over again I would use PFS for the simple fact that it camos detritus a bit better?
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    DM, I'm looking forward to seeing the shade of your sand when wet. You seemed to be after a natural-looking sand/tan color (unless I misunderstood) right?

    You say it was a 20 pound bag of standard PFS. Did the bag list the grain size or color? (I admit to an ulterior motive for my Q: Id like to copy you, in a future 10 gal)

    It really looks great in your tank and I am thinking water will darken it just the right amount.
    40 gal fw: 3 Platy; 9 Cherry Barb; 16 Neon Tetra; 22 Rummy-nose Tetra; ~30 Red Cherry Shrimp; an Assassin snail
    live plants: 2 Lace Java Fern on dw; a Moss ball; 2 bunches of Java Moss on rocks; carpet of Cladophora algae on dw

    I have black gravel in my 10g and really like the look of it but this will be my first experience with any type of sand as a substrate. It is supposed to be easier to clean because of how fine it is so I guess I'll find out.

    Yes RG.. I actually posted a pic of it in my other thread. I am going for a more natural look in this tank.. it will give me a chance to see my scaping talents.. lol.

    It says it is a standard #20 PFS. It does list the grain size.. I can post it for you when I get home from work.

    This is one of the pieces of DW I have. I bought this one a while ago. I'm not going to leave the tank like this but thought I would put everything in that's ready and cover it all with a garbage bag to avoid dust, etc. Added plus.. it gives it a temp black background!
