I’m trying to increase my amano Zoe survival rate and I’m trying to make changes that can make the 10 gallon I use more like a artificial sea bed. I’m planning to swap the substrate out for mineral mud to help algae’s/macro algeas and place ether live sand or non live sand on top, Live sand would be better but I don’t know if I might get something harmful to the amano Zoe’s by doing so, so if I use just regular dry sand with no bacteria or other organisms than how can I possibly selectively seed it with bacteria and other organisms? I do plan to add some red and green macro algae’s to help with water chemistry. To sum it up I need a small bio load and microscopic life to help keep water conditions stable while not being harmful to the Zoe’s, the tank is seeded with phytoplankton. Another question is how can I create a live rock so I don’t get tag along harmful to the Zoe’s?
