I was hoping for some real life long-term use of dsb
. As I have it in the 72, I know the benefits short term seem to be working out, but was wondering about long term. I don't touch the sandbed, but I do want a goby/shrimp pair again, which with the raised rocks wasn't an issue in the 72. The snails do a good job stirring things up too.
I actually had a guy who keeps aquariums for a living tell me he would stick something down in between the glass and sand every other week to stir up the sand there and get rid of that "messy look". Referring to the different colors in the dsb
. So I decided he may not be the best person to help me with this build.
