I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks! It's a Trigger Systems 30" crystal model. They have a Ruby model that I really wanted, but it was about 2" too wide. Didn't want to dismantle the whole system if something went awry in the sump.

You're going to make your water under the tank? Where will the water come from and where will the waste go? I'm sorry, just dont get it. LOL

No, not making water, just going to hold my top off water once it's up and running.

Bit of a let down yesterday, as the tank didn't arrive as scheduled. Next Tuesday it is now...

So I need the opinion of everyone. I'm placing my Pukani dry rock order with Bulk Reef Supply tomorrow, and I'm planning on 50 lbs. do you guys think that will be enough for a 75? I don't want a ton of rock and I understand the Pukani to be very light and porous as compared to their other varieties. So what do you think??
