I have a question for the group.
If LS dries up and all the inverts and bacteria die out would there be any eggs in there from the inverts to repopulate the sand when it is put back into SW?

That is a good question.

I wouldn't think so. I'd think the eggs would die when the sand dried. But then again, look at brine shrimp packaging.

I'd like to know that actually

good question thincat but even if there is not any eggs in it you could alaways take some sand from a diffrent tank to start it back off.

I mpersonally dont think so but that`s me. I am concerned about any stuff that did die in the process but a good rinsing would take care of that.
