Seeding a Tank


Active member
OK so Im starting out a small 22 gal Cube and I will be using some Aragalive sand as my substrate but other than adding live rock what are some other good ways to seed the tank and add some diversity to the bed?

See if a buddy or even the pet store will give you a cup of their live sand. That's all it takes. I am going to do the same for my 90g here pretty soon. All that it takes is a cup of someone else's live sand. Technically, that Aragalive is not needed.
Make sure you get the live sand from a clean source... you dont need to bring a parasite or something else into your new system .. good luck :)
