Well I always did use WASHED play sand, but to tell you the truth I have personally done a big turn around.... out of the natural look. I still set my tanks up with big resin boulders and hides that I try and get to look natural, but I use paper/ towel/ butcher/ or even have used newspaper for my chucks,(so sloppy) :0)
This is coming from an old keeper who always had everything natural. But over the years of working with collareds and seeing in my opinion how delicate they can be as far as parasites, virus, bacterial infections..... I go for a clean as I can get them/ and keep them.

I have done a complete turn around. I see how dirty papers of any type get in a few days ( not just feces, but liquid and dead bug matter .... so on. And am glad I always cleaned tanks often even with sand, not just picking out poop, but empting and scrubing out, because I can't imagine not cleaning a tank with sand for months on end, the stuff ya see with paper in less than a week, can let you see what must build up in weeks in sand or dirt, let along months.

Anyway thats just my findings and observations. Lil ole Evey , hehehee. Hope everybody has been good, MISSED ya all.
