Well ive completed building my sump and stand, and am now starting to gather everything else I'll need. I've decided on utilizing a DSB
in my middle chamber which is 11x12x11 and going about 5 inches deep. I've been looking into getting aragonite sand for it, as I understand this is some of the best to use for a DSB
. To help seed the sand, should I get about 5-10lbs of live sand, and do the rest just plain dry sand? Or will this throw the tank all out of wack and force it to start a new cycle? I plan on taking a small-to-medium piece of live rock out of the DT and placing it in the middle chamber of the sump and replacing it with dry base rock... Will that one piece of LR
be enough to start seeding the dry sand?
I'm sorry for posting all these questions about anything and everything! I just want to make sure I do this sump right cuz it's the first time setting one of these up for me. You guys have already been a huge help to me, and I appreciate any and all input!
