    Adding more cc

    My tank is almost 4 months old and cycled. I want to add more crushed coral. I have a new bag, is it OK to just add some? Will it start some kind of cycle? Should I just add alttle at a time?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    If the new layer of sand is too thick, it could suffocate the existing sand bed and cause dead spots. i'd add it slowly over the course of weeks or you could add it and then mix it in. this will cause a huge cloudy storm and disrupt the sand bed a little, but if you don't have much else in the tank besides rock, it shouldn't be a problem
