    dsb stands for Deep Sand Bed, its when you layer a thick section of substrate over 10cm-15cm so that the bacteria in the sand can convert waste through the Nitrogen cycle.

    bristle worms are often found in the upper reaches where ther are classified as detrivors, things that eat detritus and help the tank stay clean, hence some guys saying 'part of the clean up crew 'CUC''
