Buying Live Sand
I was wondering are there different grades of live sand? I have been looking around at different websites but it seems like most of the just have one type available.
is this what you mean? original grade and oolite grain size?
Marine Substrates: Ocean Direct Caribbean Live Sand at Drs. Foster & Smith
Thatís kind of what I mean but I know there is live rock from different areas that have different colors and organism and I just wondered if there was anything similar with live sand or if is all about the same. It seems like the price varies a lot website to website so I thought there might be a difference in quality. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
Try caribsea.com it has a lot of different types of live sand from the carribean and special sands for different types of fish.
IMO it doesnt matter, alot of the "live" part of the sand will colonize from whats in/on your live rock. just avoid crushed coral, it traps debris and detritus causing problems.
Thanks for the help.
