First time user and a novice aquarist.
I inherited a 75/US Gal
reef aquarium from a friend and I'd like to change substrates from crushed coral to something along the lines of Seachem's Meridian.
I want to add a clam and a couple of substrate dwelling LPS
' (fungia, helio) and I understand that a crushed coral bed is not the ideal substrate for the fleshy tissues of some LPS
My question is: Can I slowly introduce modest quantities of a new substrate into a fully established tank (tank was setup 10+ years ago)? The tanks has two common clowns, polyps, two trachy's, some softies and lots of shrooms
I'm not looking to replace the entire CC
bed, but I'd like to create an area suitable for the helio's and sandsifting cretters.
