View Full Version : Moving tank SB question

I will be moving my tank with in the next month or maybe 2 and was wondering if i should keep the current SB (its around 3 years old about 3 1/2 inches deep) or replace it with new sand?, if i should replace what type of sand should i replace it with? oolic fine sand? or seaflor reef sand?

I would keep a few cups from the top of your sand bed to seed some new sand. I like oolitic aragonite sand and would go 4" with it. Melevsreef.com has a good little write up about moving a tank and mentions sand as well (including how to reseed the sand):
