Default Sand Bed Advice?

Okay...looking for some advice.

I'm starting a new 120 and I've got it all plumbed and ready for sand. During my research I came across several ideas for seeding my sand bed...

Wild harvested live sand (order at Marine Depot Live or another site)

or Wild Harvested and a Detritivore Kit from somewhere like inlandaquatics...

or Wild Harvested and small amount of Garf Grunge (for critters, etc) (plus maybe a detritivore kit if critters need a boost

or just add a lot of GARF grunge to my dry sandbed

anyone with any experience or thoughts?....

Or just use plain sand and let the some live rock populate the sand for you :-) Still works, and in my honest opinion is a better way to set up a tank from scratch :-)

If you really want to seed it go with the Garf grunge idea.

after you get your sand in you can get a pound or 2 from a lfs if possible to seed it. i used the lr and a detrivore kit before adding fish.
