Thanks! The plan is August to get it all up and running. This is only my 2nd SW
tank ever (1st build on my own) the guy I bought my first tank from made all the rocks for the tank so I've asked him if he would make me 150lb of rock and he said yes.... For $500! It would cost me about $1,800 for 150lb of real live rock so that's a great deal! Plus I like the look and they are so pourse the drip forever once taken out of the tank! He lets them sit for at least 2mo to cycle and adding bacteria so the will be "live" when I get them. The weather here hasn't been cooperating so it's taking him a while to get them started.
Thinking of going Fiji pink for sand but still unsure.
Really just need a pump for return and powerheads, to get it up and running. Then lights (taotronics I'm thinking) It came with a mag12 I'm going to see how the PM skimmer runs on that but I think I'm going to end up upgrading that.
After that I will need the "I wants" (lol as I call them)
reactor (may do carbon too)
Skimmer waste cup-homemade, they are expensive!
Auto top off
Any other ideas? Being my first build I'm open to suggestions on things that are a must!
