Well, I went to pickup some lr
yesterday and I'm really disappointed. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I consider lr
to have some color to it.....this stuff was completely gray (a couple of pieces had a spot or two of purple on it-smaller than a dime). I consider this base rock....isn't that correct?
He did have some really nice colored lr
that was $8 a pound. RATS!!
Anyway, I did get a great deal on some sand....it says live sand but I've never given that much credit....how live can it be when it sits on the shelf for 6 months?
Also, I'm not at all familiar with using an overflow etc....I think I can figure it out but I was wondering if I could remove the spongey stuff in the sump and the overflow? I thought that wasn't typically a good idea to go with that ..... bacteria and such?
One more question...it looks like the previous setup was done using long lengths of tubing....what do you think of setting it up using pvc
Sorry for the rambling here folks...the 2nd cup of coffee hasn't kicked in and I'm trying to hurry along before hubby gets home from the boat....I have many receipts laying around.....YIKES!! LOL
