    Hi All.

    I know live rock can be used to bring back dead rock.
    But would sand taken from somebody else's tank do the same. Or are the critters in the sand different to what would come from live rock.

    sand can do the same. But yes, some critters are not the same.

    Thanks RiaanP.

    That's good to know. I plan on designing my reef with dead rock and gluing them into position in segments so its easy to lift and place in the tank. Then give it the sand and some small pieces of live rock. I also plan on pre drilling some holes for coral frags. And making plugs the corals can be attached to. And of course. Hoping for the best.
