I would love to get the 3M Colorquartz but it has been discontinued. I know they will eventually get mixed all together, I plan on Cories in this tank and Malaysian trumpet snails(don't know if I can help the snails).
Is there anyway I could have you post a Picture of the Trowel Rite? I read in a few places that is causes problems, but no one really mentions what they are! Is it too fine and gets kicked up into the filter (using a canister! Brand new) is TR too hard to plan in? Can bottom dwellers not sift properly?
I know that Cermaquartz is supposed to be the 3M replacement. Some even say they Estes bought the quarry and now produces the same thing under a new name. I was planning on buying Cermaquartz S grade, but if trowel rite is better I'll get that. I want a Very fine sand, that my cories can throw, sift, and just plan make a mess.
Tank will now have a HUGE herd of Cories, 6 Sterbais and 30ish Pandas. I plan on only doing stem plants and some crypts and maybe a couple swords/hygro. I want this to have lots of room to swim!
What is a large group of Cories called? I say we call it a Laugh!
