    DSB Live Sand

    Anybody willing to sell/give/lend/swap some live sand from a running dsb?

    I wanna put a deep sand bed into the last chamber of my refugium but it will mean removing some of the matured filter lava rock pieces to make space so I need some thats already active.

    I'm not a great fan of the live sand the the lfs sells because my logic is that if somone picked me up, stuck me in a drier, shoved me in a plastic bag and sealed it, then flew me to the other side of the world, then left me on a shelf for however long, then i'm pretty sure i would not be alive anymore.

    Anybody any ideas?

    I don't have DSB.. but the crud at the bottom of an LFS liverock tank is a good place to try and blag a cupful or two from if you're in there for something else..

    Live sand in a bag is bacterially alive (they survive a long time as spores and cysts), but doesn't have the critters that most people would consider neccessary.<^EDIT^>

    Fair point, next time i'm there i'll see what they say.
    Down here the trip is about 1 hr to the lfs so I don't go that often with the modern day fuel prices...
