This might seem like a stupid question... but how can you clean a tank that has sand in it? My tank has large river rocks.. i vaccuum out the dirt with a syphening hose. If i had sand, it would vaccuum out the sand as well..

How do you clean with sand? Is sand better than rocks?

Also, for a long period of time, my tank had NO gravel at all. I had 4 oscars and they were so messy that having no gravel was just more practical.

Anyways, if you can explain the sand situation, i would like to know. I think sand looks better in a tank, but my biggest oscar moves around the 1" rocks as it is. I think she would never let the sand settle.

You don't stick the vac tube into the sand you basically just hover it over the top sucking up any of the fish waste you can.

Glad you liked it... I found it rather amusing too. To be honest it really wouldn't bother me if it was true. Anyone that can eat a chicken can eat ANYTHING!
