    I have 15 pounds of this stuff in my 20 long, and was wondering, should I vaccum the open areas? It's like a smaller gravel in consistency. What do you guys think?

    I have something similar, it is made by Florish tho. I vacuum mine. But you have to be careful because it stirs up a lot of black dirt that occurs in it naturally. At least with the brand that I have :).
