Eric, the father of my current spawn died sometime today. Same as my crowntail earlier this week. No symptoms, water parameters fine. I'm getting worried. I've never used sand as a substrate before and i'm starting to worry it has something to do with it...

Not that it should make a difference in this warmer weather, but I discovered I had left the heater off after yesterdays water change...
Go with your gut. If you suspect the sand, remove it.
I go with bettarazzi on this..The quality of sand being River or Ocean., has a lot of undesirable elements that can not be tested for. Including some forms of algae that are toxic. Case in point is the Brown Algae bloom that remains dormant in a dry state and has devastated NZ rivers.
