So it looks like this stuff is good for adding all the little critters one would want in their sand bed like worms and starfish?

How would you suggest adding it to a DT? Should I worry about a mini cycle? What about keeping the stuff from mucking up the water? I am considering some. Maybe I could burry little clumps of it throughout the tank?

Matt

Well after Easter and going to the beach I finally got the Grunge out of the 20g temp tank and put it into my reef tank. Its some cool looking stuff! A big mixture of sand, rock, shells, lots of coraline algae, etc.... I did search thru it while it was in the 20g tank and there was no pests at all! Stuff looks amazing. I did not find any coral frags or serpent stars in it. Looks cool in the bottom of the tank. I will keep you posted as to what it does. So far there has not been a mini cycle

Never had a mini cycle! Nirtates are staying at 2ppm! Hopefully before to long the Coraline Algae will take off!

Just an FYI, I purchased some rubble from Premium Aquatics at $1.99 per pound. It seems a lot like what was described with the grunge. I'll have to post some pics, its really messy so I'm too embarrassed to post it (I just have it piled up in one corner) :p Anyhow it was a lot of small pieces of live rock, tiny shells, and dead coral pieces. Tonight I went to check and what appears to be a baby serpent star. A lot of coraline algae throughout too.
