This sand was recommended as a great starter for the tank.
CaribSea Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite Aquarium Sand
I have been to several lfs
but haven't really looked into the specifics of the live sand and LR
, costs, and where they are from Tahiti, Fiji, Florida(does it matter?).
Also was told just to get pool filter sand, not waste the $$ on the LS
Is there a black sand option? I have a great sand blasting sand supply company nearby so could get something interesting, it is around 50 lbs for $16-22 depending what it is. Garnet sand is purple and looks pretty cool, also was told there might be a downside to dark sand. Any knowledge floating around about that?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Also found some really great looking "cherry Primo picked decorator live rock"
21 year growth and has lots of things growing on it. After looking at a bunch of things which can be on it I have another question.
Is it better to not get live rock which could have all kinds of bad stuff in it, like Cirolanid isopods, Gorilla crabs, and whatever else you might NOT want in your tank.
Now I am scared! lol
