Why r u keeping the SPS section BB
I am trying to replicate the start (or end) of a reef, thats why the speratic rock work on one side and the very rocky section on the other. I like the look sand substrates, just trying to keep it a little different.

I guess bare bottom is the wrong description. its more like rocky substrate and it will transition into the sand region. So it really wont be bare, just no sand. Does this make sense.

Remember, chemical warfare happens no matter where they are in the tank. Be diligent with carbon and water changes.
I will keep this in mind. Thanks for the tip.

One thing you have to be careful of is your BTA. It can still roam around and sting your corals. I'm sure you're already aware of this, but if you have a BB tank on one side with nothing but corals on that side, you may run into problems with the BTA traveling over there stinging things and knocking them over. Just something to think about.
