new gravel

Hi! I just wanted to update for those who read my previous post about kuhli problems and changing the gravel. I got this gravel that is so small it is near to being like sand. I switched gravel in the tank and I LOVE the way it looks!!!! I have never had a tank with this type of substrate before (always had larger gravel) This looks sooo good. I can't believe how much it changed the appearance of the tank! And.... the remaining kuhli loaches seem to like it. I'm not sure why gravel would make them more active or its just a coincidence but they really haven't gone back into their hiding spots too much since i changed it yesterday. They are swimming alot more but when they rest, they just lay on the gravel instead of in their houses. Whatever made them change Its definitely alot better! :)
