    Question Coralline Algae on Sand BEd.

    My tank is getting coated in Coralline big time..and I mean big time.

    Is it normal for it also to coat the gravel. I'm noticing bits of gravel with coralline coating..I prefer a nice white sandbed.

    IS this normal?

    I have plent of hermits and a fighting conch to clean up the sandbed.

    Lighting is x2 96W PC.

    The sand bed is composed of arogonite ( didn't spell it right ) and live sand ( left over from refugium ).

    Probably about 1-1/2" to 2" deep.
