Hello everyone. Been out of the hobby for a while and just started a new build, well sort of it’s in planning. first equipment arrives on oct 8
I’m planning on doing a water box 6025 and plan to have about 4 sand burrowing wrasses. In the past my sand always blows around from flow of tank.
so what is the largest sand I can get that wrasses can still burrow in?
Thanks in advance.

I have Tropic Eden Reef Flakes and have never noticed injury to my leopard wrasses. Advertised grain size is 3.0mm

How well dose it stay put in your tank? Do your power heads cause it to move making it so you see the glass?

My tank is a peninsula, 5 feet long and 30 inches deep. I have 2 MP40’s running Reef Crest mode at 100% mounted halfway up on one end. None of my sand blows around at all.

Great thank you. That sounds like the build I am planning.
