my friends 25g tank crashed after the florida huricanes and i cleaned it a few days ago, took out crushed coral washed rocks and glass and everything, then he bought a new filter and new sand, he if using water from his 120 gallon so it doesnt have to cycle
the lfs lady wouldnt sell him anything becuase she said adding the new sand would recycle the tank, while this morning i tested it and only thing high was nitrite at about .3ppm
the reason i made this post was to point out that livesand will not make ur tank recycle as long as u use established water

The water does not contain a significant amount of bacteria. The beneficial bacteria grown during the cycle colonizes on solid surfaces like the LR, LS, and sides of the tank.
