    You are gonna wanna make sure and keep that stuff clean, over time it could build up with detrutis and leach nitrates and phosphates causing water problems. It's like putting gravel in a tank w/o a under gravel filter, I am sure you have seen what happens when you do that, not good.

    Also, it could just be the pics but your SPS is looking sorta faded, could be from lack of nutrients??? Remember, corals need food too.


    How big is that tank anyway? Should be freekin sweet when things grow in a bit more.

    That substrate will not make the move to the display. I will have some sand though, and I am sure Carrie will make sure I have plenty of gobies and blennys to keep the sand in constant movement.

    I try to feed reef chili almost every night and rods food when I think of it, usually on the weekends. The SPS looks better than the LPS. I have 2 little frag tanks that are 24x20 by 15 or 17. I have them jammed together so they look like a short 75.

    My display is a 120 oceanic tech. oh I have a pic on my rock work.......

    ME TOO
    I hope pretty soon. I need to set up a bigger sump. I have it in the back of my truck, but when I will make time to get it working I don't know.
