Okay thanks for the advice! Would it be smart to buy the LR this week and wait about a month to buy the other stuff?

Link for soft cycling in saltwater. No on the PWCs if you are not doing a soft cycle.

Those are nice pumps, and thats an ok price, but the nanos are not nearly enough pump for a 30gal tank. I've got two of the #2 running in a 20gal high.

Everybody like this one? Haha!
Also, we are planning on buying the live rock in the next week or so, anything special we should know how to do? Transporting it, rock work ideas, etc! We are planning on 30 lbs now, then maybe some baserock later on! Sorry SM! We definatly didnt mean to!
I think this is it as of right now!
