    Does anyone have an acrylic tanks set up with sand?

    I tried using magic erasers on my glass tank a few times and noticed they break apart easily. Maybe, I'm using more pressure than needed. I'm going to take your advice to use them on this new acrylic because I know that is the most safest way to keep it clean. Thank you for your comment.

I was going to just run 2 x 1" drains and 2 x 3/4" returns then later I thought it would be nice to have a 3 drains for the animal bean style. I don't want to do any more than what is needed for this tank. Do you think the 3...
