So when I started my tank I didnt put enough sand in and now I want a deeper sandbed :/(tanks about 4months old)...so my question is can I just add it without any problems or do I have to prep it in anyway..ill be using just straight aragonite sand from petco

Not really any big negatives to it. Just add it slowly to prevent clouding up your water. Personally, I'd add a cup or two of sand every day for a few weeks. That way you won't have to risk any die off from the live sand. Just keep the sand in a 5g bucket with a heater until you put it in your tank.

is it live sand?

 

IMO live sand thats from like petco isnt really "Live"....true live sands from established tanks....but to answer your question no its not live just regular aragonite sand

then just make sure you rinse the sand really really good.. and def. add the sand slowly.. and from the post above.. add a cup every other day or so.. just so you dont kill anything from the old sand..
