    I am battling cyano and I was doing my daily removal of bad patches of sand. I took my hand out and smelled something funny. I smelled my hand and:bigeek:,the smell was terrible. It smelled like rotten eggs. Is this normal?

    Hello reef heads. I have read somewhere on here that if your sand bed is old it no longer absorbs nitrates/phosphates...I have had my tank set up for approx 4-5 years. I added about 10 pounds of sand (not live) about a year ago because I was running thin due to some loss during water changes...

    taken from this month's Coral Magazine: this new issue of Coral Magazine had an article about Deep Sand Beds and their uses and functions. It gave a pretty rough outline of an idea but to me it sounded extremely simple and cool. I believe the aticle was by Anthony Calfo. The proposed set up...

    I'm looking for suggestions of brand/type/grain size to replace the top layer of my arganite bed. I have issues with detritus buildup and cyano/nasty growth in the deeper visible layers at the tanks edge. Is .5-1mm standard? I'd love the oolitic stuff, but figure that it'l make major sandstorm...

    I'd like to take out & replace the top layer of my crushed arg. substrate. It catches too much detritus & grows some funky colors visible in the lower layers. What type/brand/grain size are people using? I have a 90g mixed reef with pretty good flow, but would like some finer substrate...

    The Last thing I want to do is skimp on something really important for my tank but lately I've heard alot about hardware store sand being just as good to use, just have to make sure its calcium carbonate and not silica. Is this true, Has anyone else done this, I sure could save some $$$.
