Im in the process of replacing my old, scratched up 75G tank with a new RR Oceanic 75G. I have a few questions:
Im planning to replace the sandbed:
1. What grade should I buy? Fine, medium, large? I want to be able to keep some kind of barrow or sandsifting goby so I was thinking of going with medium or large to avoid sand flying around. Is there an advantage of having fine sand?
2. How many pounds of sand do i need to achieve a 1 - 1.5' sandbed in a 75G?
3. What's the best/most used brand of sand? Why?
4. Since Im replacing the sandbed, would I need to re-cycle my tank? I have about 160 pounds of cured LR
My tank should be here in 2 or 3 weeks. I took all my fish to a LFS
. They are staying there til I finish setting up the new tank. Right now. Most of my LR
is in a 29G and a 5G bucket. Im placing the corals back into the 75 once the water is cleared up so they can get some light.
5. Can I keep the LR
un-lighted in the 29G? Any problem if i do this?. I don't want to move 160 pounds of rock back then out again once the tank is here :/.
That's all, FOR NOW
Thanks in Advance
