Ok fellow reefers, I need some advice here. I'm at the point where I'm about done with having a sandbed altogether especially after going to my favorite fish store world wide corals. I love the look of montipora covering the bottom glass but I digress. Every week I do a 20 gallon water change on my 75 gallon reef tank with coral pro salt and dose calcium and alk frequently to keep up with my corals uptake. I sift my shallow sand bed during the change and let my filter grab most before I change the water. It's getting old to say the least. My pet peve is I hate my sand bed getting a brown covering halfway through the week and by sunday I start the same routine. I got the idea from WWC to sift the sand bed. Is it unrealistic to have a sand bed that doesn't have brown on top of it in some areas? To me it makes a tank look dirty. I've seen some awesome tanks In my years that were beyond healthy but when I saw the sand bed it ruined it for me. I know I'm very adhd with my husbandry and maybe I'm being unrealistic about my idea of how I want my tank. I won my fight with cyano and the tank is running strong for a year now with the rock and sand in it being from my other tank years ago. I have a habit of upgrading. Thanks for any help and ideas, you guys and gals rock.
