    to a 55gal that is already full of water. No fish/corals as of now, just live sand & live rock. But I need more sand. Can I add a bag of CaribSea Live Aragonite Sand? If so, do I just unplug my powerhead & skimmer and pour it on in?

    Trying to think of the best way to do it.

    EDIT: Accidentally posted this in the wrong section. If a mod could move it for me, I'd appreciate it.

    easiest way to is scoop it up in a cup and lower it down, or pour it down a PVC pipe. Just go slow and it will be cloudy for a few days.
