hey, I'm also new to this. I was wondering how to wash the sand from home depot. I am setting up a 55, I want to use about 1 1/2 inches of live sand and maybe 10 or more pounds of LR
. I would use a power filter, skimmer, and 2 PH's. I don't have enough loot for 75lbs of LR
. I read in a lot of articles that between 1 and 3 inches of sand is good. I was wondering what you thought? I was mainly trying to figure out how to wash the sand, but any advice from an experienced person helps.
