Hi, sorry for the late reply as I didn't get an email notification. I like sand much better except for 1 thing. I use a magnet cleaner and some of the sand is attracted to the magnet so it makes it near impossible to clean near the sand. I have to clean, and leave, about 1-2 inches above the sand unclean. fish avatar despina
What a great tank! We just bought a 150 gallon that we would like to start up with sand substrate instead of gravel! If you have had gravel in the past, would you say you prefer the sand? I'm sort of torn between which substrate to use! Thank you and again, you have an amazing tank! namaste ~ fish avatar janetmorgski
