RE: [Killietalk] i need some urgent information......... !!!
I've heard lots of people indicate that the sand ends up damaging the
eggs. Do you not find this to be the case? Is your sand very
'round-edged', versus 'rough-edged'? I've been playing with the idea of
trying sand as a spawning substrate, but it just feels too coarse. I
would love to have an easy way of separating eggs from substrate though,
and sand does seem perfect for that.
