Will my Live Rock seed my sandbed?
Hello. Last month I purchased a 45lb box of premium Fiji LR
from Marine Depot. I cured it in a separate tank until the ammonia and nitrite levels were 0. I used a skimmer and water changes to keep the levels as low as possible during that time. I aquascaped the rocks in my 46g tank on a 4" aragamax sand bed almost a week ago and was hoping that this LR
will seed my sand bed with some beneficial fauna. I have yet to see anything actually alive in the rock. I was wondering are there life forms dormant in the rocks that will come out at some point or will I need to seed my DSB
with something else. I am an experienced aquarist with fish but a newbie when it comes to LR
