Please help my LS is binding together to make little balls
I need some help, my LS in my tank is binding together to make little balls. It doesn't seem to be causeing problems but it doesn't look good. I don't know if it is a water chemistry problem, and if it is i would like to correct it.
10 gallon sump
bio ball drip system
50 lbs LS
i am not really sure what the total rock is but i think 80 lbs
How deep is the sand bed? Sounds like you need some critters to sift the sand. Some Nassarius snails, pods, worms and Small brittle stars will do this.
Also improved water movement will help, maybe adding a powerhead or 2.
