    I have added a Yasha goby to a coral bed tank. I addressed this issue on another forum. I am going to replace my crushed coral bed with sand. How should I go about this? Should I use live sand? Will this stress my fish? Should I remove all crushed coral? Do I need to remove inhabitants? Thx in...

    Need some suggestions/advice please. I am getting varying info from shops. I am changing a closed system 90 gal reef tank to a 120 reef tank with refugium. My main issue is with the sand bed. I wanted to use powder fine sand bed, 1 inch or so just for aesthetics. Now another person suggested...

    Should a Melanurus Wrasse be put in a tank with a DSB? I'm not sure if he would be getting attacked by the worms etc when sleeping. Also, would the wrasse end up eating a lot of the fauna in the DSB defeating the purpose of having a DSB?

    Ok Ive done some thinking and thought a shallow sand bed would do better in the long run. cheaper, wont worry about nitrates being released if theres a sand storm, and it kinda looks better. I think I will have a shallow sand bed in my refugium with a bunch of chaeto and a 65/70w light bulb that...

    I am getting to the point where I am going to paint the back of my tank on my 90 gallon reef build. I thought of just doing a bare bottom but have always liked the look of a sand bed. I just don't like the maintenance involved with it. I heard a whole ago the you can make some concrete like...

In the system that i have drawn out via auto cad i have two remote deep sand beds(Which i have never used before), with one hole...

    I recently upgraded to a new tank that is twice the size of my old one (40 gallons, 30 of which are display). I didn't have enough sand so I added super fine Petco sand to fill out the DSB. My lawnmower blenny loves to roll around in the sand and the problem now is that he kicks up dust storms...

    I'm ready for the sand in my 55. Question is, Is the a alternative to adding sand to help lower the cost of a tank bed. Do i have to use live sand at $25 bucks a bag? Maybe some play sand from the local depot store? Thanks

    Howdy all! This may sound a little strange, but here goes: I just completed my diy led light and have it up and running on my 6 month old tank. Water params good with just a little nitrate showing (I think the cuc aren't keeping up, lol) My previous light was a 65w pc, so this is much brighter...
