Alright, Squishy has been very helpful to me on getting the design for what I want to do on the refugium but I have more questions.
When I tear the tank down I figured I could take some of my current DSB
and put that in the fuge. I am not sure if I should replace the sand or just let it go. The DSB
talk of late has me wondering.
Anyway, when everything is set back up should I let the system(sand,LR
,refuge,sump ...) run overnight to get some of the cloudiness down before adding any livestock? Should I expect an ammonia spike from disturbing my DSB
? My DSB
is about 7 months old.
I have a 29 gal
running that I can place my fish into but not sure about my corals. I have some shroom, xenia, star polyps, yellow/brown polyps and a zoo frag
. I assume sitting in a container overnight won't be too stressful but if I get an ammonia spike at all, it might be longer. I need to be prepared ....
