seeding coraline

Hi all

I got some coraline scrappings from my lfs. Should I crush it up and spead it around to seed the the tank or leave it whole in one place.


Salt will raise your blood pressure,
Saltwater will lower it .

Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
I think so Brain, but there's still a bug in there from last time.

I've read its best to spread it around but try to keep it on your rocks so it doesn't just settle into the sand. This should help spread it faster than from one location.

Also, make sure you have a good CA and ALK level to help it's growth.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
