First topic message reminder :

Pictures will be posted tonight when I get home. I am excited. Just trying to figure out now what a good first piece of coral would be for my tank.

there are various grades of substrate for saltwater. the most used is pavestone pulverised limestone which is sugar fine grade and helps with denitrificationin a dsb. then carib sea has many grades of substrate but it tends to be a little expensive. if you plan on having sand sifters in your cleanup crew then i suggest a sugarfine substrate. i have done the barebottom thing and it was a nightmare when teh fish start to poop you see it and see it everywhere until it builds up to the point of looking like substrate lol! .

that is odd, i know you could create an account with pavestone and order it directly only problem is you would have to order a whole pallet of it LOL
