I've been doing a bit of "revamping" to my FO
aquarium (hence, my recent bombardment of questions), and after reading through many posts am thinking of changing my bedding from crushed coral to live sand.
But before I make this commitment, I wanted to get feedback if:
(1) the live sand is truly necessary or is keeping the cc OK; or
(2) if I can do a 50/50 mixture of the two.
If live sand is the way to go, and being that my system is 2 years old and already established, would I be able to get away with buying uncured live sand or would it need to be cured before introducing into my aquarium?
In case it matters to my questions, I'll be introducing cured live rock into the aquarium this weekend. Currently, I have some rocks and dead/frozen coral pieces. The inhabitants include a snowflake eel, tomato clown and skunk clown. No cleanup crew due to my eel.
Thanks again everyone!
