Pretty much explains itself really. If you have questions about tank set-ups, tank furniture, (caves etc) chuck them in here!

Gravel Choices

Post by killiedave57 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 3:20 am

Ok...next question

Anyone have opinions on types of gravel to use in their zebra tanks???
I have several types available to me at the moment, and want to use whatever seems to be best for them
i have:
flint river fine (about #3or #4 size)
silica quartz fine (maybe little more granular than sand like #2ish)
silica quartz med (probably #3 size..something I would use for corys)

please let me know what you all think
thanks
david

I have used small gravel, sand and bare bottom. They all worked fine. I tend to go bare bottom more than anything else in pleco tanks.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
