also, many LFS's are run by 'old timers' that are really set in their ways. Their first tank used crushed coral and a UGF I bet, and since they had reasonable success with it, why change tactics?
Because change can be good, that's why. also, sand doesn't work in a UGF...thankfully they didn't convince you to get one.

the problem with CC is that its so rough and jaggedy, that its harmful to a lot of sand sifters.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

Great looking tank!
You found the best source of information on the SW hobby right here at AA. The folks here have saved me many times. Listen to them and you'll enjoy the hobby that much more. Before you buy anything else, ask about it on here first.
Good luck!
