did i choose the wrong substrate?
I bought 30 lbs of "caribsea geo-marine aragonite formula florida crushed coral" for my new and first saltwater tank. Its a 20 gallon long and has a 3 inch base. I plan on housing live rock, fish, and a couple beginner's corals. I just put my first 5.5 lbs of live rock (all the LFS has at the moment) and want to make sure this substrate is acceptable....
yup its good, but I will say depending on how far you go sand might have been a better choice, I have CC and now that I've gotten more into gobys and such i wish I would have went with sand, its easier to filter and stays a bit cleaner than C.C. The C.C tends to hold trash a bit more than sand from what Ive seen and heard but all in all its a good start I plan on getting some sand and just mixing it with my C.C. so my engineer goby and nassarius snails have an easier time sifting through it.
47 gal reef, emperor 400, t5's, 1 spider decorator crab, 1 baby emerald crab, 7 hermits, 7 nasarius, 2 turbo snails, 1 pincushion urchin, 1 pencil urchin, 1 striped hawk fish, 1 rusty clown goby, 1 mandarin dragonett, 1 yellow tail damsel, 1 engineer goby, acro, purple mushrooms green mushrooms, star polyps, button polyps
