As I was perusing the goods at Marine Fish tonight I thought of something profound. Why is it that deep sand beds are recommended so much, yet the fish stores rarely have them in their reef tanks? Both of the show reef tanks at Marine Fish had no substrate, or maybe just a little crushed coral
Also, perhaps this should be a separate thread, but does anyone have any ideas for sand beds on the cheap? I understand we can't get Southdown sand (aragonite based) in Atlanta. So is our only option to get the Carib-Sea type stuff? Basically I was looking at using about half Carib-Sea and half basic aragonite sand
for my next tank.
