View Full Version : Setting Up New Tank

Hey everyone,
I'm setting up a new tank 3 x 1.5 x 1.5

I want to have a DSB in my display, and a DSB with Macro in the sump. Just wondering. Do i seed both the sandbeds with livesand from someone elses tank or just the one in the display?

And as for flow. Would i be better off getting 2 Tunze 6045 or 1 Vortech MP20 or MP40?

Thanks in advance

also should i add my live rock first, and then sand around it

or should i add my sand first and then put the live rock on top of it?

normally you add the rock first, then sand, so the sand doesn't shift under the load and cause an avalanche

usually i seed all mine from existing sand and put the rock in first or your diggers will cause a rockslide good luck
