    I just started up a new tank and I added like 30lbs of regular sand and about 2lbs of live sand. can this make the rest of the sand live?

    Yes. You just saved yourself some money. You can do the same thing with rock also. Get some dry base rock then add a piece of live rock

    I added my Gulf Sand to my Fiji Pink just to seed it even though it is "LIVE" sand.
