From What I've heard most Live sand is a waste cause the bacteria that make it live have been in the bag and on the shelf so long it's prolly dead. That being said I got some for my reef when I set it up, Live Rock and my water from the lfs
, had a mini cycle and was done. I'm 3.5 weeks in and have four corals, 6 hermits, and a Maroon clown. All alive and well. I can tell you that the LS
I got has some crushed coral and sea shells in it as well. I don't think you can go wrong between the two, what are you gonna do with the tank?
