I haven't really done anything to the sand. I mean I only have a few fish in 120 gallons of water and it's only been up for 3 months. So, I would hope the sand is clean.
With that said, I also have 20 little nass snails in there that stir the sand, and another 10 XL ceriths that also stir the sand. I don't know if they are all that much help, I don't see anything but the small Nassarius guys.
Tonite I have added another 2 fishies. I now have a pair of Ocellaris Clown fish. I couldn't help it, Petco had a really good price on them, 12.99 for Petco card members. So, I got them.
I also picked up a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon tall I intend to turn into a sump, a 20 gallon long for a couple of fresh water fish I have left over from my 55 gallon, a Commet (he has gotten HUGE) and a Pleco. and a 10 gallon for a QT. **** Petco and their dollar a gallon sales!!!
Do you think the 10 is good enough for a QT?
I will add pics once the clowns have adjusted a bit.

Excited!!

Updated pics. Ordering another 50# base rock tomorrow. Is that going to kick off a cycle or will the BB just grow onto the new rock?

Put the base rock in SW tub and test it. Base rock is liely dry, but I would never chance it doesn't have something on it that might start decaying again once it gets wet again.

Going to get an overflow and sump started soon. I will be building my own sump from a 20H tank.
What overflow would you guys suggest? There are so many. Also what flow rate should I get? Currently I have 2 1050 Korlia Evos and the flow from my Eheim 2080.
