LOL...I used the SB calculator on Fantasy Reef and got 267lbs for 4" SB plus two extra bags for fuge. I just double checked it thinking I may have entered the wrong dimensions but its correct as long as it is an accurate calculator. Didnt know sand disappears or perhaps settles but hey, like you said, I have some top-off now

I dont know. I think it`s going to be close though. Sounds like the tank is getting ready to take off.

So close I can hardly stand it. Looks like sump and more BR/LR is all thats left to get rollin but that must wait til I move.

I know I bought a lot of stuff that isnt absolutely necessary to get started but my long term plan is reef so I decided to get some stuff while the gettin was good.
