Renovations

I'd definitely take them out while you are putting the sand in, will be easier to get it in without the fish I think, and then will have time to settle before the fish get in there so it wont irritate them (I don't actually know if it would irritate them anyway but I would still move them while putting the sand in)

I agree.  Definitely take them out.  Make sure to rinse the TMS well before adding it to the tank.  I did and it was clear almost immediately.  :D

 

 

Hope you love it as much as I do.  And, of course, we expect pics.  :photo:

Thanks folks. Can I just ask how big your tanks are and how many bags you needed to get sufficent coverage? I purchased a 20 pound bag, My tank is a 40g dimensions: 15" x 36" (3 feet).

:nana  Looks fantastic!  How long after adding the TMS did you take the pic?  It's very clear!  :D

Thanks, After filling the tank back up and adding the sachet of water clarifier that came with it I put my fish back in about an hour after filling it even though it was still alittle cloudy . I took the picture about 2 hours after luckily I rinsed it. The moment I put them back in as usual they tried to eat a mouthful and quickly spat it out so their still getting used to eating their food and not the substrate.

Very pretty!  How are you liking the TMS?

The TMS is so nice I love how it sparkles and the feel is so nice. I have to get used to the fish poop standing out but the fan helps to disperse it and push it to the filter intakes. Thanks

Yeah, the poop definitely drove me nuts when I had just sand! I had the white Moonlight sand though, which is much finer than TMS. Rather than just sit on top, it would coat the poop, making it impossible to vacuum up. So I added gravel for a 50/50 mixture ... much easier to take care of. If I do just sand again, it'll definitely be the TMS. I love the sparkly look it has. :)
