    Hello everyone,


    So I have started a new tank and have what might be a stupid question, I went with dry sand and dry rock, my rock is the reef saver rock from BRS. What I am wondering is in order to get coralline algae, will I need to seed my tank with some or does it occur naturally? Thanks for the help!

    Yes, you will. But good news is you can just find a turbo snail with some algae and scrape some off of it. Or seed with a piece that has some nice growth already.
