recommended that I do not add sand at the beginning of tank cycle with lr
as I should expect an algae bloom about 2 weeks into the cycle and that it would be very difficult to clean the algae off the sand. So, that's what I've done - lr
1st, no sand yet. I have no algae yet and parameters are close to completed cycle. I'm adding more lr
today to bring my lr
content to maximum desired... thus starts the cycle over to some extent.
Question - should I go ahead and add sand with the new LR
, or should I wait until algae blooms and had a run at cleaning it up and changing some water [then add sand]? Planning on using play sand.
Any benefits to mixing play sand with argonite?
Thanks for any suggestions!
