I'm in the process of upgrading my 100L tank to a 240L tank due to a v generous Christmas gift from Dh. The old tank has the pea sized and a bit smaller gravel, but the new tank came with a bag if quite coarse gritty sand stuff. Is this going to be a problem with the fantails that I will be swapping over? And is it easy to clean with a gravel cleaner?
Sorry, these threads aren't coming up on my active convos for some reason...Yes, sand is fine for goldfish. Pea gravel is OK too. They do like to dig around, so make sure the gravel isn't going to get stuck in their mouths. Hope my reply isn't too late for you
PS let's see some photos! Your DH is a diamond for buying you such a brilliant Christmas present Playsand is a good, cheap substrate although might be tricky to get this time of year.
He is indeed a diamond. The fantails do seem fine with the substrate. They look a bit lost in there though, as it's huge by comparison.
Do please excuse the pair of tights dangling at the back, containing some of the original gravel. I've transfered all my old filter media but an trying to boost seeding the gravel this way too. Some of the lucky inhabitants.
Wow, it looks fantastic
