Wow, that's great! You got the same rodi as me! It wastes a bunch of water but the taste of the pure is crazy.

Cool! When i have problems ill ask you

Red sea- thanks!! You too!!!

Ibrahim-if the rock is really good and checks out okay, then itll be live and well stack it.
If it isnt so great we will get very little, and glue together some base rock for some knarley formations

Cool. Reefrocks.net has some good sand for $15 with shipping. Its 40lbs too so I'd do that rather than PFS

Ya know, when we bought the tank it came with two large bags of used sand. We also have another bag of sand i used in a fw 10 gallon awhile ago. So could i do that if i clean it all very well? How much does pfs cost?

Yea you could use it. But if you dont like it im sure you know how big of a pain it is to get out.6-15 for a 50lb bag. This is the sand reefrocks has http://reefrocks.net/index.php?page=...mart&Itemid=56
