cleaning the sand during pwc
...just a tiny section each time but a few weeks ago, I stopped doing that as well after reading mixed reviews on whether or not to clean the sand bed. Found more opinions saying not to do it, that it releases to much junk and to just let the critters do their jobs. We shall see here in a little bit....this is going to be a larger change than normal so it should go down.
I am thinking about getting a few shaving brush plants and some halimeda for the tank itself. Since I don't have a fuge or sump and I absolutely love
plants anyway (gardening is my first love), I think I will put some in and see if they help too since they love nitrates. It doesn't look like anything will eat them either... My live rock is void of any macro at all now because I had a copperband butterfly and he devoured everything on them.
Here goes nothin........
