    Good morning everyone
    I'll be addding sand in my aquarium today
    I've selected black sand and white
    Is there any pros and cons about mixing them
    How can I make a litttle hill with the substrate on the left side of my tank
    I don't think I could had more than 4 inches of substrate
    Hope some people understand what I'm talking about
    Thanks

    To make a hill you can put rocks in the left corner and then cover it with the sand on top

    I'd say be careful adding water after mixing sand colours as I opted for black and white and made a mess of it when I put the water in

    Thanks
    Did you use a pot or plate to pour the water in

    I used a metal plate which I also wouldn't recommend as the thing floated lol. It's a bit vague as it was a while back but I may have used a bowl aswell trying to salvage the scape

    yeah anything,
    Some people put weights, bags of those plastic/glassy ornaments, gravel, a decoration if they have the shape
