set up a 25g high and a 20gL today.used two types of sand.estes and 3m cq(both black).both look real nice.especially like the 3mcq as its just the righr size imo.
very little pre washing i might add.
the estes is very fine grain wise and looks very nice.quite a bit of the estes sand is having a hard time becoming water logged.
hopefully after a few days the floating sand will sink.every few hours i squash the bubbles of sand to make then sink but more keep floating up.
put some plants in the estes tank but dont have any for the 25g so i decided to do a fishless cycle on it.
would love to show pics but camera is charging up at the moment.hope i didnt make a mistake on the estes sand
