I'm coming from the freshwater arena and used pool filter sand in the past with excellent results. It's awesome stuff! I'm looking to get a SW
setup going and am in the information gathering phase now, heck I haven't even bought the tank yet, so please bear with me.
In the LFS
I see these packages of live sand and was wondering if I could mix that with pool filter sand (the same stuff I used with my freshwater tank)?
Could I do a 50/50 split of live sand/pool filter sand? I'm not sure how folks handle the live sand. Are there living "creatures" already in the sand? If so, do they get sucked up when you vacuum?
I love the hobby and want to get back into it the right way. Many thanks.
