so as previously discussed...a DSB would be a lil overkill for a fish only tank. But ill go the fish only....pre reef route.

So which would be the best sea bed to use? WHich substrate and in which layer design?

:lol:

wetty some guys use seasand only,some only argonite, but if sea sand
isnt available then argonite and sea sand alone would be good,
i decided that i would make use of 3 layers, the guys collect the sea sand merely
cos they contain live critters :)

Let me rephrase. Im talking bout the actual seabed in the tank....not in the sump tank.

ok in this case i retract my statements

for you DT substrate you can use either argonite or playsand (cheaper option), but
play sand needs to be washed many a times to clean it up to its whiter consistancy
, i will be going play sand as well :)
