  1. thanks for the reply I ended up buying a bag of play sand from Bunnings but I think I got more mud than sand I didn't like it anyhow as you said to fine and would end up causing problems. I also got a bag of pool filter sand from Clark Rubber which is coarser than the play sand I tested with some acid and got no reaction. I'm thinking of some sort of Geo and something a bit smaller that is compatible not 100% sure yet I'll set the tank up and see what's available. Cheers
  2. After many years of keeping African cichlids with shell grit substrate I have now decided to set up a couple of South American tanks. I've read a lot of post about substrate where people are using play sand filter sand paving sand etcetera and it looks like it comes down to personal preference. So before I make up my mind which one to use was wondering if someone could tell me if these sands and gravels are inert and pH neutral. Cheers and everyone have a great Christmas

    air pumps -- need help/advise

    Would a little blower be a better option ? I know the impeller on a blower make some noise but thay don't vibrate which is your problem.

    Different ways to build a tank

    Im no tank builder but my thoughts are that with method one the water pressure is trying to push the joint apart & with two it is trying to shear the joint & it's a lott easer to shear than push or pull things apart.

    My new set up

    I used dunlop render and oxide on a 4x1 mtr background for a pond then sealed it with clear concrete sealer its been 12 monhs under water and its still fine I also use grout for smaller rocks and caves etc. I think if I was to make another background I would experiment with a black pond sealer covered in sand or gravel
