I got a few things from Marinedepot that arrived today. As you can see below I got the Caribsea South Seas Base Rock 40lbs, they price matched another online fish site and I am VERY pleased with this rock. I only got 40lbs because I wanted to see how it looked first. I plan on getting another 80lbs of this stuff, which comes out to roughly $1.74 per pound after shipping and everything.
I also got an Eheim 1262 for my return pump. I have heard many good things about this pump, I hope it lives up to its expectations.
Finally I got 2x 4" fans for my canopy to keep the metal halides as cool as possible.
I ordered my tank stand/canopy and tank 3-weeks ago, I am starting to lose patients now. I will call the LFS
tomorrow to see what is going on.
