Using Oolite Aragonite Sand
So, I am setting up my new 75 gallon tank. I spent all day yesterday washing the sand and filling the aquarium. I finally got the cloudiness to go away. Now I am just waiting on it to cycle. I added in a bag of Biomax out of an already cycled tank, so I was hoping to put my Sailfin Pleco in the tank soon.
I didn't notice until today that I purchased Marine Aquarium Oolite Aragonite Sand, which apparently buffers pH (according to the label on the bag). I did some reading and found that some Cichlids would do okay with this sand because they can tolerate a higher pH. I want to make this a Cichlid tank, but I'm not sure if the sand will be okay for my Pleco or my Cichlids. I haven't decided on the type of Cichlids that I want, but I've been looking at either Angelfish or African Cichlids.
What are your thoughts?
