    What sand would you use to setup a new tank? I am planning on a 1-2 in SSB. I am not going to have a bare bottom tank - it works for some and not for others, Natures Ocean Caribsea Southdown (IMO No good) Other? Would you put the rock on the sand or build it higher?

    I am taking the tank back down again to do a CLS:doh: . Is there an advantage to plain sand or the carib sea aroganoite sand or carib sea arogonite special grade substrate. I plan to do a very SSB ~1/2" or so, just enough to cover the bottom and give my godie something to play in!:funny...

    I need advice on how to setup a basic tank(no high-tec equipment). The tank will be a 20H with 310gph. Other than flow, good live rock, sand, heater, and weekly 1-2gal water changes what do I need to setup a healthy tank with 2 small fish, soft corals, and tulip anemones.
