How much live sand per gallon of water is recomended for a nano reef? My Nano Cube will be in tommrow. I have a 20lb bag of sand ready to go, but I am not sure how much of it to use.

Ok thanks, in the articles section it said 1/2 lbs per gallon which seemed a little low to me. I think it may just be a typo.

substrate layer is much different than lr. substrate is all about the depth. personally, i would go for a very thin layer and no more than 2 inches. at a certain depth, it'll become a deep sea bed, which can have positive or negative effects depending on who you ask.

I have a nano cube and only have about 5 lbs in there. Just enough to lightly cover it. I put my live rock in there first (on the bare bottom) and then put the sand around it. It gets well sifted and stirred by all the critters.
