Why do you say it should be below low tide level?HI Arab - Yes - you can, BUT you will have to try and collect BELOW the low tide level. Meaning collect the sea sand in a tidal pool where there is water in still at low tide.
The sea sand particle size should be between 0.05mm and 1.5mm in size maximum.
For your DSB, you should collect enough sand to allow you to make your DSB at least 120mm deep.
Hi Zookeeper -Why do you say it should be below low tide level?
Sorry But there is no way any sealife collected in Walvis Bay is going to survive the temperature of a reef tank. The die-off is going to cause the guy big problems.Also - you have the added benefit of getting pods, worms micro starfish, etc..... everything that you want inside your DSB to assist with the cleanup job of detritus in your tank.....
I have just spoken to my friend from RBM and he reckons that silica is inert only can be dissolved in a strong acid and says we in the marine hobby have nothing to worryIf only there were more people like you and me
