Live sand provides the first building block for
your marine tank. This Aragonite based sand is collected from
the ocean near reef areas or from well established aquariums.
Live sand contains worms, bacteria, copepods and
other beneficial organisms. A bed of about 3-6 inches is
recommended to help regulate pH in your tank.
Live rock is covered with live bacteria beneficial
to the health of your saltwater tank. The bacteria acts like a
natural biological water filter breaking down ammonia and nitrates.
It's also a great home for fish, invertebrates and
coral. You may also find algae, small clams, feather dusters,
crabs and sponges on live rock.
Generally you want anywhere from 1 pound to a
maximum of 1.75 pounds per gallon of water in your tank.
