aragonite + silica??


Recommended Posts

i have a freshwater 5 gallon and i was interested in converting it into a reef,, its a planted tank with silica sand,,, i was wondering if i could mix some aragonite with the existing silica sand..


would this be a bad idea since the sand is heavily fertilized with tons of nutrients...


would be very thankful if anyone could give me some good insight on this matter.

yea i agree, i have used silica sand with some other mixed in for substrate and with some tanks it's a bad thing and with others it's not it depends on if that kid of sand leaks silicates, so start over, and do some research, a lot of research.
