    Ok, so waiting for about 2-3 months, I haven't seen any population of copopods, worms or any criter life in m tank.

    Was wondering if there anyone in pta area that can give me a cup or 2 (3 will also work) of a good DSB. I really need to get some new life into my tank...
    Thanx...

    @RiaanP might be able to help. You can also temporarely put a piece or 2 of live rock on the sand and give the critters a chance to migrate into the sand. You can then change them around after a month or so.

    @RiaanP, just thought I'd let you know, that pump made ALL the divrence in the tank. Now a question, do you think I must rather get the bigger pump? The one is rated @ 2800l/h, the other is 4500l/h, youy think I must go for the bigger one?

    bigger
    If too big, you can always T-off the return line and run some other reactor from that.

    Else you can go for 2 smaller pumps to deliver the same rating, but check the combined wattage used. Advantage with 2 return pumps is redundancy. One pump decides on a Sunday morning to fail, and you do not need to run around. Then again, having an old pump lying around as a spare would solve that.

    Awsome, thanks boet. I'd rather go for the bigger one, can keep the current one for a spare. I never thought it could make such difference... Tank is looking better by the day...
