Lmao.... I just have diatom, but it filters out before it gets cycled in the tank.

Ur dt sand is fine. I put about 3 hand full of rubble, no real weight. Enough ur water has to filtrate over several layers.

There are lots of opinions in the aquarium world about DSDs. Some say "do it" and some say "don't". Not everything works the same everywhere. I have a somewhat DSD in my DT and a DSD in my refugium/sump with LR ruble and algea.
Hope it works out for you

I have so much coralline it's starting to blockout my corals from growing, its plating on my frags. The lfs today said the zooas should grow on it but so far they haven't. While I like the purple, it really is a pain, every rock in my tank is covered with it and the glass too. With my setup I have to take the light off the tank to get at the side walls with a razor.

I have about 10 lbs of rock in my fuge, I'm also trying to encourage pod growth as well so the more nooks and crannies the better.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
