    Hey guys, iv got a standard sump design with DSB (play-sand) and would like to add aragonite: even if its just for calsium??? or even another DSB. iv got a canister without inner inlet tube, cud i use it for a dsb, would a small amount of aragonite in mesh have any contribution, should i, (how can i) just slowly replace substrate wiv argonite, got LPS, current dsb just doesnt wanna go, (1year) WHAT?

    Depending on the size, I heard that what you can do is, remove a cup or two (depending on the size) a day and replace it with aragonite... Im not sure how suitable aragonite is for a DSB tho...

    I'm with Keegan. Just wash the aragonite well so it doesn't cloud your water
