I think the pukani is a good choice. I was gonna get a bit this week too but ran out of money. LOL

If you are going full on reef then it's recommended to get between 1 and 1.5 lbs per gallon. So the 50lbs is a good start. You might find you want more rock as time goes on and you can add base rock at any time with no cycling or other issues.

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

Sure hope it works!! Tried to avoid any harsh 90s and worked out plenty of unions to allow for any repairs. Guessing there will most likely be a few as this was my first plumbing adventure.

Thanks!! Took a little bit of time, but it's silent, accessible and I like it.

Good luck with your plumbing!! I'm following along!
