ginnie5 special kitty is the brand I used, got it at wally world. you need to check it firs though and make sure it won't change your water. I did not rinse mine I just mixed it with some sand out that down and covered it with a good layer of sand. The tanks has been up and running for about a year with no problems. Over time some of the cat litter has crept to the top but it kind of looks natural. If I pull up plants there is major clouding but it usually clears up in a matter of hours. The roots on my plants are awesome. Its just now that I'm having to add anything for my swords. HTH!!

Alec Hi,

My sister is going off to college and shes giving me her empty 10 gallon tank so i decided to experiment with it before i do anyhting to my main tank. Right now i have a lot of cat liter around and was wondering if its a good substate and how would you go about cleaning it so the dust does not cloud the water to much.?

Please i need comments so i can start thanks.
