Comments Play sand makes a great substrate. It does however compact, and could get in the filter if you are not careful. That was a lucky shot when I took that picture with the ripples on top of the water. I think the ripples look really cool. They make the aquarium look like a little stream, which is what I wanted the aquarium to look like, but the ripples add to the effect.

That's a nice compact tank. well planted too! I like the tiger barbs because they kind of look like clown loaches. Play sand huh? not a bad idea, I'll bet my loaches would LOVE that! I finally tied a "sock" type filter around my inlet to stop it from sucking up baby snails - that might help with the sand. I'm pretty sure the loaches and the filter are already thanking me for it.
