Q&A - Xmastree Worms
By Rob Toonen

I also made another change and used for the gravel 3 - 5 mm clay (In fact I use cat clay, without any additive of course). Do you remember? "I'm going to start a new system with a 36''L x 15''H x 10''W aquarium. This will be a freshwater tank with 30 Paracherodon axelrodi and 4 Microgeophagus ramirezi and a lot of plants.
