| || | Live Sand: Original or Oolite
I currently have a 55gal with crushed coral and I have had trouble with red-slime. I believe if i switch to live sand i should see a huge improvement. The crushed coral just traps too much debris. My question is when i am looking for which type of live sand to buy, i am faced with original grade or fine oolite? What are the differences besides the size of the grains or which would be beneficial, pros and cons i suppose??? Thanks for any help...
