  1. I'm currently exploring changing the gravel in my tank to Tahatian Moon Sand or to Peace River Gravel (PRG). Here is link to video on PRG: As far as I can tell the grain size is the same. I've read many posts on TMS, but haven't found any on PRG. I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on TMS and especially on PRG. Thanks!
  2. OK, after hours of searching the forums, I have concluded that the general approach to substrate is "all in the eye of the beholder." Some love gravel, some can't live without bare and others die by sand! I have always sported black or natural gravel in my tanks and recently gave-in to a bare bottom set-up for my 46 bow in attempt to control my otherwise out-of-control nitrates. After a month, the nitrates are so-so, but I am already wishing I had my gravel back. The bare bottom is easy to clean, but looks incomplete in my opinion. I am now to the point where I will either put the gravel BACK in the tank, or switch to a thin layer of Tahitian Moon Sand (TMS). The gravel scares me from a choking stand point and bacteria trap, but the maintenance involved with sand turns me off as well, as there seem to be conflicting reports about the ease of TMS clean-up. My topics of discussion: How difficult is a TMS set-up AND is it safe for Goldies of all sizes? How much is enough or too much?? (1/4" or 1/2" or more??) Finally, (unrelated) I have a large chunk of driftwood in the tank that may be the culprit with my nitrate issues. General thoughts on driftwood with Goldies?? Any other comments or suggestions are welcome as well! Thanks!
