Cories, Plants and PFS
I have a 75 gallon aquarium that I would like to switch over to sand. ACE has a product, HTH pool filter sand (Aqua Quartz® 50lbs Pool Filter Sand (61308)) that I have heard good things about. One thing that hasn't been mentioned thought is whether it is to sharp for cory cats sensitive barbels. Alternatively I am looking at CaribSea's sunset gold sand but it is much more expensive.
I assume I will need root tabs and/or liquid ferts, right? I would rather have a lower-tech tank and I am not able to do CO2 but i love planted tanks.
Does anyone have experience with this sand and cories? I am hoping to breed my sterbai's so they really need to love it. Do you have any other recommendations?
