New on the scene...

Hello all, I am a NEW member to this site. I have a 55 Gallon tank and am having problems that I believe are being caused by the SAND in the bottom of my takn. It is HARD to keep clean and though my NITRATES are correct i still have issues. JUST got over dynoflagolites aka "SNOT SLIME" killed alot of my coral and was sooo ugly and heart breaking... I stay ontop of the tank and just feel that the sand that is in the bottom of the tank is what needs to go. I think that by having sand in the tank causes one to have to work extra hard in keeping their tank "correct". Does anyone have any other ideas for what I could replace the sand with that may be EASIER to MAINTAIN??

The NEWEST member intown,

Welcome ti the forum!

Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
