Ok, I was all set on doing a 4-5" DSB
, until I read the horrors of hobbyists with DSBs. I understand that no matter what one does, the sand bed will crash in about 4 years. It will release phosphates and the algae will grow out of control 8O .
I really like the look of sand over bare bottom, this is driving me CRAZY
Please anyone with a successful DSB
respond to my post. I want it so bad, it`s the primary reason why I fell in love with SW
, all the life in a DSB
is very interesting to look at.
Last - I thought that having a refugium would absorb the phosphate released by the DSB
? Am I wrong?
