I will probably rinse the sand. I don't need any more risk than there already is. I will use the two-liter bottle method or possible set in some sort of divider for the replacement and settling period. Then remove it and replace the rock and wait, then repeat. How does that sound? I even found some Southdown in my area for seven bucks for fifty pounds.
I get mixed opinions on the DSB
. In the forum here everyone is all about it. The LFS
guy says that it will trap nitrates. He has varied depths of CC
. I know it is opinions, but I really believe that the DSB
is the best. I am having a hard time talking my wife into the DSB
I have been having a bad green hair algae problem on the CC
. Would adding the DSB
have a big affect on algae growth in my tank?
Sorry for the long and interrogating threads. I just have a need to soak in the knowledge in here. Thanks for the help.
