Which sand do I need to buy??

Hey gang,
I'm getting closer to converting a 37 gal gravel bottom to a sand bottom, have most of what I need except for the sand. Also in the middle of a 24 Aquapod build, and plan to do larger tank in the future that may have sand sifter blennies.I am a bit confused about grain size and such.

Which sand for FOLR no sand sifters?

Which for Reef no sand sifters?

Which sand for sand sifters?

I also understand that I can seed with some live sand, I was going to go with only about 25% of live sand, seem ok?


thanks in advance

That`s the same type sand I used. I think also you meant sand sifting gobies.

Sure thing! I would skip the "live" sand and go with the dry, just make sure you rinse it.
