Question about sand substrates

Posted By: Kit <kitjaguar@comcast.net>

I've noticed in several pictures that some of you have used sand as the substrate in your tanks. How do you clean it? I have smooth gravel, and when I do a water change I usually use a gravel vacuum, and I get lots of gunk drawn up from under the gravel. It would seem that debris would accumulate in the sand as well, but that a vacuum would remove the sand... Enlighten me please!

Cheers,

Kit.
