Great guys, thanks to all! After I posted I thought of just seeding some new sand with a cup of the existing sand. I keep forgetting it's only 2 gallons! LOL!

My only question is, without a light source, will the LR be useful as a replacement to the bio balls? With the stock hook on the BC, there's no way to attach any lighting to that compartment.
