Could I use more LR?

I can't remember how much in pounds I actually have. I think I've got around 35 to 40 pounds. How much is too much?

Does it look like I can add more to this tank?

What kind is the best to add?

well most people say that 1.5-2 lbs per gal is just fine. on a 25 gal that would be like 38 to 50 lbs. but by the looks of it you could put more in and still have room for fish. what type of tank is it goign to be?

IMO, you can never have too much LR unless it crowds your tank that much fish can't swim.

It just has 3 fish, 2 shrimp, snails and a couple of crabs. I'm not planning on adding anyting else (except a sump).

I've got a nano that's got a bta and couple of clowns. It will probably have corals eventually.

Do you really have a Blue tang in a 25 gallon tank? If so that is rediculous in my opinion. I would return it from wherever you got it.

No matter the size that is a fish that needs alot of swiming room. And in my opinion 25 gallons is not samll for even the smallest tang
