Yeah, you could do that. Assuming the LR
from the LFS
is well cured (been there a while) and you keep it under water on the way home, you could hook it up right away. I would probably lean towards several small pieces of LR
instead of one or two large pieces though. You probably wouldn't even have to add any of the CC
from the main tank. A different set of critters will live in the sand anyway. The best thing would be to get some good LS
from a friends reef tank or from the LFS
. That and the LR
should give you a good starting culture of critters.
