Lochaber,

Yes, I completely removed all of the white sand by vacuuming it out. I first tried to work with it by manually removing it the algae, but it just made a mess and spread everywhere....

Diana,
That's a great idea! I never thought of that, and it would definitely look better than tongue depressors!

I appreciate the advice!

And Smeagol: thanks, too! I think it's a great idea....

Diana & jrh are both right!

It could be a gimmick, but it really depends on the local pet store. I don't shop for rocks at the big chains stores. IME they don't know much in the rock department....

Smeagol,
No worries! If it's only been a week, you're probably ok. I'd do a water change and just clean out your filter. You're fine.

I agree with the majority. Easy plants, in my experience, have been: Water Sprite, Java Fern, Java Moss, Anubias (specifically Congensis), Ludwigia Repens. Good luck & have fun!
