Hello Eileen. Thank you for all the help regarding resin and plastic aquarium ornaments. Now I have a question about the substrate. I want to add to my marine aquarium a yellow “coris” wrasse and I have an aragonite substrate in the neighborhood of 1.5 to 2 mm grain size. I have being doing some research on the web about the right kind of substrate for that fish. Some places mention it needs fine sand to bury itself in there to sleep and other places say it doesn’t need sand at all. Do you believe the substrate that I have will be good enough for the wrasse to bury itself? Happy Holidays. Florida Crushed Coral Aquarium Gravel, 15 Lbs: Aquarium Substrate

After selecting an aquarium of the appropriate size for the fish you will be placing in it, the next decision should be what type of freshwater aquarium gravel to place in the bottom of your tank.Gravel is the most popular type of aquarium substrate, with one of the biggest reasons for its popularity being that is comes in a wide variety of colors and particle sizes, with the choice of colors being why it is preferred by young children who are taking up an aquarium as a hobby.If the siphon you are starting is attached to a , place the wide end of thegravel vacuum in the aquarium, and rest its open end on or slightlyinto the aquarium gravel. If this siphon is not attached to a gravelvacuum, you will want to keep the end of the siphon in the aquariumseveral inches away from the gravel. Point the other end of the tubetoward the bucket.Some other gravel vacuums have a valve in them that will allowwater to flow one way, but not the other. The manufacturers of theserecommend that you shake the gravel vacuum rapidly up and down in theaquarium to push water past that valve and into the tube. In thismanner you can get the siphon started by just getting water pushedover the lip of the fish tank when it can start to flow downward intothe bucket. I find that using this method always makes the aquariumunnecessary messy and often creates a mess. I also find that this isthe most difficult method to use to get a siphon started.The for tanks up to 55 gallons is a two-inch layer. For tanks larger than 55 gallons, two to three inches should be sufficient. Shallow layers of freshwater aquarium gravel can be unattractive, and deeper layers can be much more difficult to clean.Another important thing to consider is the that you plan on having in your freshwater aquarium. If you plan on having live plants in your aquarium, it’s best to avoid larger gravels and opt for finer gravels instead.
