    White/light colored substrate

    I’ve always used black substrates to cover up detritus and any other kind of filth. Ready to try white sand or just a lighter colored substrate for a brighter look. Any tips I haven’t thought of to keep it relatively clean ?

    Fish pricing

    Son and I were on a mission to find a group of German blue rams today. Went to one lfs and they had them for 25$ a piece ! And they weren’t that great looking. Went to another lfs , our usual spot and bought 3 for 10$ a piece much healthier looking too. Just crazy how different prices can be.
