    Hi there

    I have a 150 litre marine tank for 6 months up and running now. I have a crush shell bed at the moment. Can I put marine sand over the crush shell bed? What will the affect be? Please assist!

    as far as ive seen, crushed shells look like poo, sand is much more natural looking

    Nothing wrong with crushed shell bed. Why do you want to put what "marine sand" over it? and why'd you want to change?
