I have a few diatom blooms around my tank but they are very small. im having a bad feeling about my sand and I would like to add more. Looks like all the sand is bigger than a grain of sugar much bigger.
would it be ok to add smaller grained sand and mix it in or would i have to take the larger grain sand out. (not sure if its CC
i dont remember). also if I can mix it and add more sand should I clean the areas which have the diatom blooms or can I just cover them with the sand? about 90% of the blooms are near the edge of my sand bed.
also my sand bed is min 1" and max 2" so I was thinking of going about 2 or 3 more inches of sand. this is for a 75 gal
tank with no fish or rock yet.
my live rock comes today and I just wanna make sure my sand is set before i scape the LR
sorry for all the posts. just wanna learn from the best and trying to avoid a disaster. i dont really trust the LFS
