Looks like it is not live sand, next thing you can try is a treatment with Coral Snow and ZeoBac or CyanoClean. Another alternative is A-Balance. You can also try to replace the sand in 3 steps over the next 3 weeks. Make sure to soak it very well before using the new sand. How old is the sand ?

Personally I prefer a shallow sand bed but basically bare bottom will work also. Make sure not to remove all the sand at once, I would do this in smaller steps over a 4 – 5 week period to keep the biological changes as low as possible.

I do not have any kind of experience with their material so I can not really give you a recommendation. Basically the materials can be different even if they look like they are the same.

hi again.
its almost 2 months now.Results r very good. very happy with the tank

so i am currently dosing.

DAILY:
Zeo start 0.4ml x 2

ALTERNATE DAY:
Sponge power 4 drops

WEEKLY TWICE:
Zeobak 4 drops
Zeo food 4 drops
amino acid c 4 drops
coral vitalizer 8 drops
b balance 2ml

2 WEEKS
Zeospur2

Also My tank is pretty filled up now. dont know wether i should increase the dosing or not so planing to stick this schedule for now.

also planing to order the next batch, below is the list:

K-Balance Potassium Concentrate
Potassium Iodide Fluoride Concentrate
Iron Concentrate
Pohl`s Xtra Concentrate
CyanoClean

I am also planing to get coral snow which helps in water quality.
so do we have to dose it with coral vitalizer ?? dose just normally dose it in night?

Glad to hear your tank is doing fine !

If all works well I would recommend to keep the dosing regimen. CoralSnow can be mixed with other products but not more than one per mix. Personally I have dosed the elements separate and CoralSnow pure. 8 ml 2 x weekly should work well for your system.

Hi.
OK i need some serious help.
I found out why my nitrates never came down till now from 50. It was due to i was using 4 filter socks which i use to pull out all together approx 3 weeks later so the socks used to stay in the tank with all the dirt which kept my nitrate at 50.
so i have removed the socks now. I want some advise on which mechanical filtration i should go on which will help me to get ULNS.
i am planing on filter floss or poly filter which will be float on the egg crate above the water level so the filter wont make my water dirty again.
Is this a good idea?
thanks

You can use filter socks or bags, I have had no issues with them but they need to be cleaned daily.
