minus the sand bed. I know I will get some more with corals on them and what not but does that sound like enough or could I really benefit by having more. Ill post a pic up soon. Thanks on advance.
Sounds like a starting point. More would not hurt but its entirely impossible to tell how many pounds you have or ultimately need especially without a picture. Porous rock will be much light be also has more surface area and there for less is needed. Dense rock will be heavy and less surface area requiring more rock for biological filtration.
Ive never used Texas holy rock so im not aware of its properties compared to say fiji or pukani.
