Aquarium Black color sand, quantity 5kg. Sand doesn’t allow water to flow through it as well as gravel does. However, if your tank includes fish that like to burrow and scavenge in the sand, they will do the job of filtering the substrate. Sand has a couple of other benefits when compared to gravel. Many aquarium owners think it looks more natural, better mimicking the lakes or riverbeds that make up fish’ natural habitats. In addition, closely packed sand substrate needs to be changed less frequently. Because there are smaller gaps between the sand particles than between gravel particles, old food and plant matter tend to stay on top of the substrate rather than sinking to the bottom where they can rot and decay. Plant and Animal Considerations Certain plants and animals that you keep in your aquarium may have strong preferences for either sand or gravel. For example, many species of cichlids need sand substrate in order to thrive since eating particles of sand help them digest food. Goldfish, on the other hand, risk suffering from an intestinal blockage if they accidentally ingest sand and so should always be housed in gravel substrate. Aquarium plants also have preferences for sand or gravel, so make sure to research the needs of the plants and animals in your tank before committing to sand or gravel. Placing and Changing Substrate When placing substrate in your aquarium, make sure to use the right amount. Small to medium aquariums should have two to three inches of gravel or one inch of sand in the bottom. Larger aquariums should have three to four inches of gravel or two inches of sand. Substrate does not need to be changed on a regular schedule, but should be swapped out when it becomes slimy or muddy. Sand Versus Gravel In Your Aquarium A number of factors go into deciding which type of substrate to use in your tank. Choosing the right substrate is essential to the health of the plants and animals in your aquarium.
