    thanks @Dexter, using it for substrate.
    cant get live sand here in bloem.
    is crushed coral a good substrate?
    any other suggestions would be great

    @leeg to be honest try and stay away from crushed coral. Im using it in my tank and I HATE it. When I took my tank over from its previous owner I didnt know better. He was using it and I just carried on. Now I regret it. The stuff is ugly, fish poo goes in everywere. It's just a nightmare. I can change it, but that will mean, changing rock scape and corals. If possible, go for arragonite first time around.
