    Hi, I’m going to be setting up a new 200l tank and was wondering roughly how much sand/ crushed coral etc I would need and also what’s best to use. Thanks

    Live sand is a waste of money really, it won't take normal sand long to become live. How much you need depends on the dimensions of your tank and how deep you want the sandbed
