Re: sand


here are some really basic sand questions.  How to you clean it?  How do you
avoid sucking it up over time when you gravel (sand) wash?  I love the black
sand look, but what about anaerobic areas that could develop? Is this BB
safe for apistos that might sift it?

Sorry if this is slightly off topic, but I have been meaning to ask for the
longest time.
