I'm about 2 months from setting up my first SW
tank and have been picking up things for it here and there. I've already got the tank an 80 gallon, filter, skimmer...that's about it. I'm building my own stand and haven't done it yet. Question is, there's someone near me parting out their tank and has about 100# of live sand for sale. I can get it really cheap! What will happen to the sand? I'm sure it will "die". For the price I can get this sand I can't even purchase just regular sand. Even if nothing lives it would be something I think I should buy but wanted to get your opinions.
