Substrate for bichirs


Recommended Posts

Some good tips here.

I think BDBS could work. I recommend finding it out for an hour+ in a utility tub to get rid of the flag dust. (My wife still hates me for doing this in our downstairs bathroom tub … it will leave everything stained gray)

I personally prefer the coarser / medium grade BDBS — I buy at Tractor Supply.

Your tank will be a bit cloudy. You can run a HOB with filter floss in to “polish” the water some. In the end, you’ll just need to be patient til it settles.
