I have a question.. I made up about 40 gallons of new saltwater to house my rock . It sits dark and covered up with power heads circulating around the rock.. Will this water be any good to use in my display tank? I know it's a bad question.. But money is real right this month. Think it will be ok to use? All the Rock was scrubbed and washed out extremely well..

Use new water. We're you dosing it with ammonia to keep the bb alive.

Well tank is up and going again.. Going on week 3 and the sandbed seems to be matting up again.. I'm guessing I'm going to have to start the tank completely over and pull the sandbed..

Matting up? What do you mean exactly? Are you sure this is a problem? Do you mean the hair algae? Are you using the Kent product?

The sand is growing green and when you move it . It's like the very top layer is binded together from the algae Click image for larger version

I am a little bit.. But I just did a 40 g water change yesterday. So of course I'm back down to probably 1300 again. And I'm nervous with it. Because I just stocked more snails and I've read that raising the mag will kill crabs and snails.
