Its easier to keep the tanks clean without sand. I used to have sand in my growout tank but then i got tired of vacuuming the sand so i took it all out and now im starting to get some nice brownalgae on the bottom instead :headbang2
I have a thick layer of sand and have no issues have a lot of fish with my ray that pick at the bottom.

Ive never had issues with sand. I just got tired of cleaning the sand every now and then. Since its only a growout tank i tend to feed heavy everyday so its easier to keep the tank clean without substrate

Yah my ray burries himself in the sand and comes out when hes hungry. I love how hes starting to climb the tank more gotta get the suction cups for my pvc heater guard asap.

My old motoromales used to swim around constantly untill he had been eating then burry himself.

And as for the sand i think it is more eastethicaly pleasing to my eyes but as i said in a growout tank i tend to feed heavy so i like the simplicity of just doing 80% wc twice a week and just scoop the poop up with a net. Down with an eheim 1262 pump and a hose and drain the tank in a couple of minutes.

I'm at work right now and these are older pics. I have since added more sand to the substrate and have ordered some Manzanita driftwood that hasn't arrived yet. I've selected the biggest Rio Branco Oscar to keep in here and have 1 in a 125 and 2 more in a 600 gallon pond. I'm running 5 fx6s on the 300 currently as the holes were patched before I bought it.
