Dan, looking great!! I'm guessing that as hard as its been to get to this point, I'm betting its going to mean that much more to you when it's done. I was going to mention one thing. My lfs recommended that I not put rubble in the sump. They said keep it as clean as possible. I'm sure some here would disagree but I took their advice and have been running great for over 6 months.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

I heard from my lfs that the best way to do it is some chaeto and 1 piece of dry rock. Not rubble, just 1 medium sized clean piece.

Either choice is fine but I like the single medium sized rock idea. You can just use your least favorite rock in the pile. There's usually one oddball rock in every tank.
