Going from flourite to sand, couple questions
I originally setup my 210 with Flourite and am just not happy with it for a couple reason. First, visual appearence, I have setup many small tanks and used sand everytime and have always loved the look and texture of sand. Second, I miss my dojo's and want corries, I had 3 dojo loaches in my tank and found that the flourite just chewed them up. Third, planting ability, you cannot fault sand as a medium to hold plants in place, I have had 1 inch of sand hold plants much better than burrying them 3 inches deep in the flourite, ok enough reasons here are my questions.
I currently use Malaysian Trumpet snails in my current tank, if I continue to use them and keep my sand layer between 2 and 3 inches should I have to worry to much about eruptions? I plan to use osmocoat slow release as my substrate fert so no soils or other fert heavy substrates under the sand.
The common consensus in terms of sands appears to waiver between play sand, pool filter sand and sandblasting sand. What is everyones experience with these different sands and what are your suggestions.
