    stupid Sand Question

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you for all your help with my FOWLR. I had a stupid question currently on my tank I am using crushed coral and it is easy to syphon but how do you clean or syphon sand would it not get sucked up. I have never used sand so i dont know how do you clean it if you have puffer fish and they leave nothing alive but themselves and maybe the odd hermit crab if they feel like it.

    Thank You
    Terry

    so with sand I dont have to syphon down like crushed corel every? so in other words just do water changes or does ammonia and stuff build up but you cannot get it out unlike crushed coral.

    Thank You

    I'm sure that there are some inverts to clean the bed that puffers will not eat. What about a sand sifting star?
