Got it off the internet. I have done tons of research and people are doing well established reef tanks with 20 gallons and less. But I will take any advice.so any thing else please feel free.
+1 to this. Dry sand will become live sand. No need to pay a premium for the live sand IMO.It's like using dry rock that you have to establish , to me this may save money but does not save time. As for the live sand this is a total waste of money there really is no Live sand unless it has been established in a tank that can be used from one tank to the other, what I would do is buy crushed coral or argonite type and start with that and save the money... the rock well that depends on if you go with man made or the real stuff , the sand will cycle with the rock and you can go that route.
Depends on how it's made I suppose, how porous it is. I prefer the real thing.So is live rock better or man made? Or is it all about more or less time for conditioning the tank?
