Ok please excuse another opinion question ...
We have our 75 gal
tank set up. Has about 3-4 in of Araganoite sand and reef mix. We have the wet/dry running and all is good.
We are considering seeding the sand with some live sand and getting about 30-40 lbs of live rock. I worry with the current dog puffer and the porcupine puffer I want will make the LR
a waste of money. I might be trying to do too much. Does anyone know if you can keep LR
healthy with puffers in the tank? We will keep the bio balls until more LR
is added but I really don't know if that will happen. I just think the LR
would give the tank a nice look.
We saw some nice base rock at hirock.com that we might try too.
I think I am obsessing a bit but I don't want to waste money if I don't have to. I think I could be happy with the wet/dry and no LR
but I really like the looks.
Also, the sandbed is not real deep but will the 4in be maintainable with no manual substrate cleaning. We might try some critters but the puffers have a bad rap with clean up crews ...
