I'll be getting a gramma for my 29g reef. One of my favorite fish by far!

Is live sand very much? I'd like to use something that looks really natural.

Live sand in a bag is kinda iffy in my opinion. Just go to your lfs and find a sand that you like. I went with pink fiji "live sand" in my cube only cause I liked the color. lol

I believe I started out with 34lbs of sand in my 29g so I wouldnt go any lower than that. Two 20lb bags will probably be enough and give you a nice sandbed.

ANYTHING that says "live" in it at your lfs(freshwater or salt) is probably not alive(ie, bacteria starters, ls, some copepod brands). JMO..
