Ok, so I have a SW
tank that is about 8 months old, but I am basically new at this cuz it was my ex bfs obsession and when he left, he left it and now I am like uhhh this stuff is very complicated and everything is not going so good lately, but I do know a couple things. I have a few semi-related questions.....
1. The tank is a 55g but only has 35lbs of LR
in it- I've been wanting to get more, but its too expensive! I've been researching a little on this Aragocrete rock and it seems like the way to go, but has anyone used it? Do I cure it with regular water or saltwater? Somewhere I saw 1part concrete 6parts sand/shells/etc and then one other had that and added 3/4cup plastic shavings? plastic seems a bit odd to me though, do you know if this is ok for your tank? Also does anyone know a reef/fish/aquairum safe colorant to use on these aragrocks? I found a site but they want $15 just for S&H on a $3 product (yah right).
2. When I was researching this aragocrete I came across whats called "cutting" but I didnt understand the site. Is this ok for your stuff? Does anyone know a good site that explains this? My tank has a lot of assorted mushrooms, but in 7 months they havent seemed to multiply and my rose tip anemones have multiplied, but dont look to healthy. I want to get this tank going and looking good, is cutting the answer? And how is this supergluing ok for your stuff???? Seems like it would kill them.
Thanks for the help in advance
