Just as you would cure other natural structures (live rock, etc) before adding them to your aquarium, it is important to soak your CaribSea South Seas Base Rock prior to placement. This helps saturate the Seas Base Rock and loosen debris caught in the pores. Rinse thoroughly and arrange in your aquarium as desired.
Determining how much substrate to buy for your new aquarium depends on the size and shape of your tank, as well as the depth of the substrate bed you wish to achieve. Another factor is the type of aquascaping structure you're planning.
Refugiums, small aquariums that either sit next to or hang onto an existing saltwater or reef aquarium, are used by a growing number of aquarists to continually cycle water into and out of the existing tank.
The most exciting transformation your aquarium goes through is from a tank filled with water to a water world filled with plants, decorations and fish. When you aquascape, you are literally creating an aquatic landscape in your aquarium.
