So the day I got the Tenecor when I went back to Home Depot to return the trailer I rented I went to get some Pool Filter Sand for the turtle tank and for the Tenecor. I tell you what I had never washed sand that was that clean. Anyway so yesterday I'm putting a thin layer of sand on the Tenecor cubicles about 3/8" and it looked so good I called the wife to check it out and She loved it. Out of no where my wife said Hey the Ruby's are spawning! I'm like what? I look down since they are in the bottom section and the female is holding already and they are spawning right there in front of us. So First I got the set up at a great price and with a huge load of fish. The next day of having it found a Zebra Long Fin Pelvic holding and now Ruby Reds Spawning. Wooohoooo I'm on Fire........arty0049: So pretty soon this guy will ad Ruby Red Peacocks along with the Zebra Long fin to his Aquabid section.

Great News! yeah I love pool filter sand too. The only thing is I don't wash it first. I run ir over night with filter floss in the filter to catch any stray dust and add fish the next day. I figure if it's clean enough to go into a swimming pool filter without rinsing it's clean enough for me I know Navy I'm lazy LOL
