Oh, my bad. I didn't realize you had that much already. Typically you want at least a pound per gallon, but I always like to add more. It gives you a larger surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow and increases the appeal of your tank IMO.

Tank is a 20 long with 50-60lbs of live rock.

You are right about the rock. Your tank looks great though. I'm still nervous about the orbit though. I am going to order is some time this week.

I like the par 38s too. I don't want that much excess light though.
