Is CC worth it or is it more of a pain?
/IME, it can be a pain. You could possibly try it in half the fuge, but then you really couldn't take it back to the LFS
. I think there was a poll about CC vs LS
vs. barebottom, somewhere on this forum.
Is the CC going in your main or fuge? I started mine w/CC and LS
. I had to try to sift the sand out of the CC when I changed out my substrate. It did look good for a little while.....
Ok, so my invert list consists of snails, an urchin, and a CBS.
The snails might have a little bit of a problem, depending on what kind you get. Nassis like to stir the surface sand, in you case, they would not be able to since the CC would sit on the top. The urchin and CBS would be fine, but then you couldn't get any of these:
I'll see if I can find that poll, there are a lot of great posts, that might help you decide....
