Logan,

I just posted a thread "All you EVER wanted to know about Southdown" which is actually a distilled repost of a thread on http://reefcentral.com.

HTH,

Cmor

Well, I got 6 bags at HD this am. $4.99 per bag.
Pulled most of the LR and put it in a 12gal I plan on using for a quarantine tank. Filled that tank with water from the 125. A heater and 2 Maxi-Jet MP400's are in there too. One very large piece of LR is still in the main tank. Not that I can see it now .
Still need to put the base rock back in, hope I can do that soon.

I have another 45 lbs of Fiji aquacaultured LR shipping tomorow for Tuesday delivery. Should I ask them to hold off till the main tank clears?

Thanks for all the good advice.

Cmor

Put something in to start a cycle in the tank with the sand. The sand storm won't settle down until the sand is coated with bacteria.

Well I had 50# of LR in for a week. Ammonia had dropped back to 0, NO2 spiked to .5 and NO3 jumped to 20. There is still one large (aprox 12lb) rock still in the tank. Should I put the rest of back in?
Should I also put the new LR coming Tuesday in or ask them hold off shipping it till the cloud storm settles?

Put the new LR in. It will cycle and provide the bacteria for the sand.
