    I have about 2-3kg of coral sand left over from when i made a DSB a couple weeks ago, i want to rearrange my LR. I was wondering can i put the coral sand in as well?
    I have fish and LR only tank. Water condition is spot on.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for reading

    shouldn't have a problem at all... just try not to disturb your DSB too much or you can crash your tank.

    I should have mentioned that the DSB is in the Fuge. Only have about 1-1/12" of live sand in the tank itself.?
    Should still be ok ?

    Sure, it'll be okay. Spread the new sand out over the surface -- don't pile it up all in one place.

    I took your advice and spread it out evenly without disturbing the substrate at all. I did a quick 30% water change at the same time just in case. Thanks all for the guidance.
