yes, but you asked me what i was talking about, and i told you. if you have aragonite based sand, it should be buffering the ph, assuming you have adequate flow to the bed and to the surface. i was saying that if you need a buffer, the calcium based sand bed will be more effective than some coral skeletons because of the surface area.

no. if you are asking if it will knock the ph out of whack, it won't.

the reason i explained all of that above was because i was under the impression you had a very small tank with very little real estate. since you don't have a PH problem, why put dead corals in the tank? why not live ones?
