I am planing to use bright sand as my substances and create a iwagumi type. I have two questions:
First question: would hc will grow in sand? What other foreground plants will do well in sand?
Second question: After like a week or two the sands turn brown, I don't like the looks of it. What should I do? vacuum it?
Thanks,
Finch_man

HC will grow in sand. Quite nicely, I might add.

Congrats on deciding to use Bright Sand, that stuff is amazing.

I'd vaccuum, as the brown sand you describe is definitely not normal. Maybe you have diatoms?

Rain did this.. She attached it to mesh to keep it easily controlled and weighted down.

I'm guessing Diatoms are on the sand, Have any MTS?

The sand looks like it has a tan to it. Maybe just dirt?? Did rain just tie the HC with the mesh?

I really like the color of the sand and the stone together thats why I am using sand not aqua soil, plus I can vacuum the sand and not worrying about it.
