Yes, I will be using live aragonite sand. Still haven't decided on a brand but currently looking into Arag-Alive Fiji Pink.

Why does the rock leak? I'll probably keep this tank set up with just coral and a damsel for a good 6ish months, to avoid to the best of my ability a die-off. I am going to be spending well over $100 on just the clownfish, let alone the other stock I'll be adding. It's a loss I can't afford to take.

People use Damsels because they about the cheapest fish to use for cycling the tank. If it dies, it's not the greatest monetary loss. You'll think this is crazy, but Block Mollies can be acclimated to salt water and have been used as tank cycling sacrifices - and they are much cheaper than Damsels.

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

Then they're no longer in distress?
