I am working though my Sump and fuge design, I am close to being happy with it, now to get a quote on the glass...
I am going to have a 55 gallon with a lot of live rock. My fuge design has DSB
, macro algee and a little live rock, and some animal that will help maintain the sand bed. There will be rubble in the inflow section of the fuge.
The fuge will be about 14" square. If I go DSB
of 4-5 inches do I need to go deep in the display tank? I was hoping for 1 to 1.5 inches in the display. I was going to put FINE sand in fuge and a medium course sand in the display.
is going out of busniess and has 50lb bags of sand for $20. 1 bag will give me about 1" in the main. question is how many.
Does this sound reasonable, or should I go fine everywhere, or mix it up, layers?
