Currently my 75g has a crushed coral/sand substrate....and it's bit chunky which I'm not too fond of. When I started in this hobby, someone told me to go that route because of what a massive pain it is to vacuum the tank with just sand in there.
It's been a while now and I'm realizing that I'd prefer to have much more sand than i have right now.
I have a ton of pods
througout the tank now....some of them are getting pretty big actually (size of a pencil tip!) because I don't really have anything that really feeds off them. Will adding a layer of sand on top screw that up??
They are constantly crawing around and underneath the coral chunks and I don't want to bury them.
Secondly....how would i go about laying down this sand in a controlled manner? Friends has suggested that i use a pcv tube, place it down in the water and have him slowly pour the rinsed and dried sand as i direct it. Kinda like a concrete truck application.
Any insight would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
