What kind of fish you like? I'm doing about the same thing my tank is cycling now except I'm having a sand bed.

I just don't see the point of sand unless housing fish that require it witch I can live without. Variety is the most important thing to me. Tons of cool fish but I don't want to run a thread on fish but the concept of a bare bottom tank with no general aqua scape just a bed of life rock. Lots of flow and plenty of caves and places for corals.

What's your future lighting? Getting a sump? Going all out or as cheap as possible? Craigslist or new? A mixed reef tank or one specific type? Protein skimmer or allll natural haha?

All great questions and I'm glad you asked. Looking for maybe someone with experience in this type of tank. Bad and good experiences. Learn from someone else's mistakes before I
Make them kinda thing. Time to think and open for suggestions.

New, all out, with sump, the works. Plan on this being a very long term project. Current tank gives me my fix but this would be my dream tank.

I have made my share of mistakes . One random one is especially if your tank is on the carpet or the second floor, make sure you have a way to get your sump out if it breaks or just run the risk of having to take apart your entire system and replace the sump and have a drenched floor (this didn't happen to me btw).

Will you do vinegar dosing? I've always wondered about that...I don't want to do it as I fear I'll overdose or mess it up

This will be a basement tank. Building an entire work room behind complete w sink and ro di unit. Will also serve as laundry room. Flooring is a good thought. Display will be built into wall. Will be a lot of work and planning but
