    live sand from the east coast

    Can i use live sand from the east coast of canada?
    i was thinking that a few cups in the fuge would help to diversify my tanks eco system.
    good idea or bad?

    I think the Fauna from this latitude would not like the temperature of the aquariums......last time I went swimming on the east coast the water was quite cool compared to the tropics where most of our aquarium life is collected from......

    Never know may work though would have to try and experiment.

    Like Rob said..

    I wouldn't do it - likely it would all die, adding a load to the system. You might also pickup polutants and/or pests.
