Suggestions for a substrate?


Recommended Posts

We have a 5 gallon with green neon tetras and one mystery snail.  The current substrate is river rocks, but we are running into a problem with keeping the tank clean.  Food and poop falls down between the stones, and when we vac, we have to stir up all the stones to get to the nasty, which really fouls up the water.  

We would like to replace the substrate, but are not sure what would be good.  We want something that would be good for (or at least not detrimental to) our snail, Fred.  We want small size particles.

We also have a anubias coffefolia, a windelov java fern, and some java moss growing on some chollo wood

Anyone have any suggestions?
