The two powerheads would work just fine and the HOB
would be good for mixing your new water.
also i was just wondering when using dead sand do i mix it with the livesand together, and do i ahve to acclimate the sand and LR to the tank or can i just stick it in.
None need to be acclimated but you may wish to "dip" the LR
in some salinated selzer water for a minute or two before placing in the main tank to get rid of unwanted hitchikers. If pre-cured LFS
rock, it may not be necessary.
Add the dead sand then the rock and place the LS
around the rock and atop the dead sand. FWIW
, you don't need the LS
unless it's cultivated from an existing tank. Bagged live sand is a gimicky waste of money IMO
. Especially if you are using LR
i have alos heard i can have 4 fish. wodnerin if this is alright:
2 false percula clownfish
1 yellow clown goby
1 royal gramma
Actually in a 20 gal
, 3 would be a safer number. The two clowns would be fine but only one of the other two.
and does n e one have n e advice on setting up the LR i think its called aquascaping
This ones more a personal choice with many but personally I find it much easier to aquacape placing the smaller pieces on the bottom. Push them into the sand so they are stable and then stack the larger pieces on top. Finding crevaces that fit well together will wedge the rock making it more stable.
