he told me he used aragonite sand but looking at it and what i saw in the lfs it looks more like crushed coral to me. looking at the side of the tank it has about a 3 inch sand bed and all the finer particles are settled to the bottom.
it has a lot of broken shell in it too.

here are some pics of the curator of the tank, Snuffaluppagus aka Snuffy.
My wife named him


If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.

Those first shots look like aiptasia and that's a neat name for the snail...

Happy Reefing,
