and off topic, is it good or bad buying "pre-owned" live sand..? lol its going to be coming out of a running tank.
I probably wouldn't buy pre owned sand unless you are cycling a new tank. The die off from an old sand bed could potentially cause large nutrient spikes in your tank.

+1 on the snowflake blenny if you can find one. If not get the midas. Easy to care for

My Midas blenny is small. I love her blue eyes, they really look pretty under the LEDs.
