I have a few simple questions...
1. In all the info I've read about refugeums, no one has bothered to mention what kind of medium the plants grow in. I'm assuming Livesand but my LFS
only sells gravel and crushed coral. They don't even sell 'dead' sand. Will coral work? Shipping on sand is nutz!!!! I don't want to mail order it.
2. Whats the difference between LiveRock and BaseRock? I know that price is one thing. Base rock is a heck of a lot cheaper. I'm assuming that liverock is just prettier? I still plan on getting live rock but I don't see any reason to put a $50 rock at the bottom of a pile where it'll never be seen. If base rock will work I'd rather put that down there. Maybe that's why it's called "Base" rock?
