    White is also cool, i also have white but its easier to see the dirt only problem.. but easy notice when sands need cleaning is a plus though

    Thx for the comments guys. I had white sand in but decided to change it. its not such a big mission to change it. I'm glad I did.

    I'm just contemplating to put more live rock in or not. What you guys think?

    FrazerW Yes I am using the standard skimmer and I don't have any problems with it.
