oh boy---I've got to get one of these--what are the preferred lighting requirements for this colour?

yeah--I think you will find like I did--its just algae. Just be careful not to disturb the entire sand bed.

if you are worrying about the rest of the bed---get some nasessarius snails--they to a great job and stay under the sand bed--they also keep the sand bed loose and stop it from clumping over time.
