I have HC planted in fine sand. (I have Malaysina trumpet snails in the
tank, too, and no problems.) The HC still comes loose. I have some planted
in a nanotank with only shrimp and thus far it has stayed in the substrate.
I don't think HC is practical in most tanks. Other people have other
thoughts on this. Frankly, I think it looks *much* better in the nanotank
(10" x 8" x 8") where it is in scale.
