Default Replacing live sand

Hello all,
I have a question about replacing my live sand from my 150gallon tank which I e been running zeo for about four weeks and had some sps die in this process mostly I think was my fault but I read where I should NOT be using live sand. So my question is im replacing the sand with dry sand now how should I do this take out slowly or all at once? Iam gonna soak the new sand for 3 days.

Hi Kavatika80



If you do not have constant issues with algae or cyanos my recommendation is to keep the sand at the moment. Those issues are common but there are systems using the combination which do not show any kind of issues.

Thanks G.Alexander, I do have what I believe is some cyano since I started and of course I had some sps corals RTN on me when I started zeo up but I believe was caused by me overdosing also I have some little bubbles on rocks I blow them off almost every day which I haven't had them as much the last few days
I have around 150 gallons of water volume and and I've been dosing

4 drops zeobac daily
.5 zeo start 2xdaily

Should I up my dosage or is this pretty close?


Also I was thinking not taking out all the live sand and leaving like half would this be enough? I have been having allot of like diatom on my sand like it's a new tank and I've had this tank going for almost two year now but since I switched over to zeo it seem when I got the brown alive on my sand kicked in.

Nitrates=0 AIp test kit

Phosphates=says zero atm(lowrange test on the way)

Calcium=460 (dialed my calcium reactor way down)

Nitrates=0 (AIP)

Skimmer=Bubble king mini 200 slim (dry skimming)

Can you please post some more information about your system and post some pictures of the cyanos ?

Your KH is to high already which might have something to do with the TN you have experienced, let it slowly drop to 7 – 7.5 and keep it there stabile.
