Just get 5lbs of live rock and the rest base rock. Base rock will be a few dollars a pound. That's what I did. 35 lbs of base and 5lbs of live. My tank cycled in 10 days.

Id pick up 20lbs of sand while your there. Don't get live sand its a waste of money.

Also don't get the real fine or "sugar" sand. I find it stirs up really easy.

Just received my 2 800gph phs. Man are they powerful lol. I put one of them in my 100g fw and man did it stir up a mess with sand.

Now I have one of the 800 gph and the 240gph phs in my 30g. Any suggestions on how to place them?
