Thanks for all the great info. If I do decide on doing it, I will be willing to pay the extra to get good live rock and some good live sand (ordering online from reliable sources) to layer over the top of the dry sand. And as for fish, I won't be looking for a heavy bio-load either. Just a few cool looking fish that are compatable, probably starting with clowns. But when I decide to do it, I'll want to do it right, and 99% of the info I will rely on is from here in the forums, and maybe 1% from the lfs
on things like brand names, etc. And I'll also comb this forum and all the articles thoroughly, as I'm doing that now for starting up my first planted tank. Again, thanks all for all the great info.
