I'm talking about the live rock, coral and fish. The fun part.

Got most of the stuff out. Figured out the lights. But 2 bulbs will not come on. Not sure why yet. Just need to figure out how the skimmer works and then take the sump out and clean it.

Looks like you got alot of good stuff there. Reef octopus is a great skimmer and you even have an ATO. Great deal.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Got sump out and cleaned out.

And got skimmer together and running in the sink to make sure I understand how it works. Was kinda simple.

Grrrrr..... The woman is making this hard on me.

Trying to draw out what I want the tank to look like. And came up with like 5 ways that would look awesome. But then she comes up with this off the wall idea of raised rocks off the bottom of the tank. So now I have to redraw it all out again.

What she is looking for is were we will have the 3-4 in. Deep sand bed and then about 2in above that is were the rocks will be. So looks like I will be rigging something up for it any way now. Just Tring to find a way to no make all the weight on small points and being able to build it up from there.

What is the egg crate stuff called. Cus I will be needed to pick up some of that I think to make this work. :-/. Time to get creative.

Egg crate is generally available at the hardware store in the lighting section. It isn't that strong, so be cautious. It is possible to bring rocks crashing down and killing your favorite fish, so be sure your foundation is sound.
