    What to do with tetras

    I have 2 glolight tetras in a 5 gallon tank, they're really small so I think they'll be okay for now until I can get a bigger tank.

    Gravel to sand question

    I'm rescaping my aquarium, which currently has gravel and I'm planning to switch it to sand. Will it be okay if I just replace the gravel or do I need to worry about beneficial bacteria?

    How much salt should I dose?
