Hey friends! Ive had my 55g reef tank pics shown below, with cc
substrate for about 2 years now. It has about 70 lbs lr
a snowflake eel, a maroon clown, a coral beauty and another fish i forgot the name of,. as well as mushrooms rocks , polyps and a bubble tip anemone. My anemone is getting weaker and weaker as the days pass and its due to the ever increase in nitrates. the Lr
covers almost 80 percent of the substrtate so i cant vaccuum as much.
I am seriously wanting to change out the substrate with a new sandbed.
How much sand would be good and is it safe to use this far into the tank life? i am keeping all the water in 2 massive rubbermaid containers.
I can get my sand at HD
what would be the best ?
