    Changing to sand substrate

    Yeah it's me, million questions girl My LFS might have sand but i want to make sure i don't get anything that's going to raise pH or cause algae growth. To my understanding silica sand is the only one that won't raise pH? If that's the case then i'll be stuck with algae

    Hope the pics work, that is a canister filter right? I don't think I'd really be able to move it up much further, if you zoom in you can see it's already almost at the surface

    Changing to sand substrate

    I don't think it has an intake tube.. I'll take a photo of it and post. I only have a very thin layer of gravel at the moment just to cover the glass.. If I add about an inch or inch an half of sand I think it'd be cutting it pretty close Is a larger grain still going to keep fish poo on...

    Changing to sand substrate

    I want sand that's fine enough to keep fish excrement on top to be easily siphoned, something that I could grow a few plants in the near future, and won't get sucked into my filter. Any ideas?

    Changing to sand substrate
