Thanks everyone!! Im pretty happy with it. Im probably going to put little pieces here and there to create more depth and use more rock. I bought 55lbs of dry rock from Bulk Reef Supply and didnt use all of it.

Mynd:
I agree. Im going to try and not keep frags on the sand eventually. Happy Holidays to you too!

Grknyer:
Yup! Finally made it here after lurking a bit. Seems like a lot of great people on this site. I have been good just keep upgrading tanks like this hobby makes people do. Hopefully I keep this one for a while. How have you been?

I dont know how to do multiple quotes so I will do it this way for now lol

Quang: Thanks! I cant wait for it to fill out too. I feel like its going to be cycling for a while.

Teen: Yes sir! Not too many of us with that name but almost everyone calls me Gus

Grknyer: Im probably going to post some more pics tomorrow. Starting to get some diatoms on the sand so im keeping the lights off for now. Im not gonna make it to this swap

Evo: Thanks! I hope I dont dissapoint. Like Breakin said im going with a MP40w but just using the koralia for water movement during my cycle.
