ok guys got 40 pounds of argonite sand today will get the rest later its not in budget now but i have been told to put that ocean sand on the bottom i have twenty pounds of it now and its alaready live so that will help with the cycle so i have 60 pounds of sand half of wat i need i will get 40 more as soon as i can but it will be a while..... can it be added after i get fish in tank if i do it carefully.....plus i can always move the fish back to the 55 to add the rest of the sand if i cant do it with them in but hopefully i will have the sand during the cycle period i will try to add pics later i am working on tank now...

its sand that petco sells natures something its cheap really fine sand from the ocean but its dry when ya buy it looks like beach sand to tell ya the truth but it says for reef aquariums but i never liked it i just want to use it on the bottom hopefully it will stay on bottom it did in the 29 gal after i put agronite on top. the 2 20 pound bags i got today are figi pink agronite so all in all i have 60 pounds of sand in tank now looks good too the ocean sand only made a thin layer on bottom tho which is wat i wanted.

oh, i thought it was from the ocean.

yeah, it will get really dirty if it doesnt stay on the bottom. but im afraid that when you gravel the sand, it will get sucked up and mixed around...

yea i had that problem with it in the 29 getting filthy but i added some bigger grain sand to the top and it always stayed under it. not to mention right now their is twice as much figi pink on top of it so it should go anywere lol if anything it will mix in with it which i dont think that would be to bad.....but more than likely i think it will stay underneath it. i am going to make a seperate thread seeing wat everyone thinks...
