good call!! crushed coral is very limited to its ph buffering ability.it will breakdown rapidly making it useless.live sand/aragonite has higher buffer capabilitys and last alot longer. give joe a call at saltwaterparidise.com i dont know if its the cheapest but the quality is there 100%.his rock is full of pink purple algea.

In my opinion the best way to figure out when the sand bed is ready for "serious" shifters is, when the first green, red or purple algae will show up below the the top of the sand. That means your sand bed getting estabilished, and ready for a stiring crew. You can find a very nice article and pictures about that in the book "Reef Invertebrates" by Anthony Calfo & Robert fenner.
