OK so when i started my tank i got Crushed Coral substrate. I think its causing me algae probs. and i know its not well advised to change it all at once due to bacteria in the bed. How bad would it be to change it all at once. its a 29gal with around 30 lbs live rock. Bak Pak 2 skimmer. And in the instance i did how would i keep the new sand from becoming a slurry of that "gunk" i remember from when i started my tank. i have coral in it mostly LPS and some softies. HELP!!!!!!!!!

I'm new to this board but unless you are head strong on having substrate I would just take it out. This makes up keep so much easier in small tanks, put a power head pointed on the ground and it will keep it clean. Fill in the bottom with rubble rock to hide the glass. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
