I have sand now, and i've been told this isn't the best substrate.
What could i add to make it better?, Pictures might help aswell...
My tank size is a 15 gallon, any help would be great thanks.

Small, pea-sized gravel (about 2-3 mm in diameter) is a good choice, or, if you're willing to invest, you could look into fluorite (it's a product by Seachem)

Sand might compact on you. It might be best to add a whole new substrate. If all is well and it is an established tank i would not worry about it. But if there are issues ADA now imports through the Senske's so maybe some Amazonia soil.

I dont seea reason to worry about it then. Its all about personal preference.
