Anyways I want the best substrate for the my tank. For the critters that live within it and for those who like to sift through it.
Well, if you're looking for a substrate for critters to live within and sift through, you are pretty much limited to sand. CC which is the only other option doesn't really provide a liveable environment. That means you need to decide between a DSB and a SSB. Most research I've done on DSBs indicated that they have very limited benefits in a small tank, although I do run them in a couple 20gal Longs. Be careful with the "sifters" as they can often be detrimental to your sandbed.
