Pics of Sand Tanks - I Suck as a Photographer

Here are some updated pics of the tanks with sand. I know they're sucky pics, but maybe you can see that the grain of the sand is quite large, and that it is very clean in all tanks, and I do basically no vaccuming. I no longer do ANY cleaning for algae, because there's an SAE and algae-eating pleco in each tank, even with real plants

variatus platys, tiger barbs, siamese algae eater
