I agree. 90 lbs should give you a nice sand bed.

Fantasyreef has a cool little calculator. You input your tank footprint, how deep you want the sandbed to be, and it estimates the amount required. You didn't state how deep you want, so i can't run it for you, but it's at the bottom of this page.

I was going through my thread and looking at the pics I posted back in October of last year of my corals and I thought it would be neat to show the amount of growth since then.

ORA Pink Birds Nest (Neilan's)
October:

Today:


ORA Hawkins
October:

Today:



I knew I was getting some growth in these corals and I only posted these two because the difference was amazing, but I see them every day and I don't notice the change as much. When I went back through the thread and saw how small they were in October compared with right now I was floored.

Anyway I thought I would share.

It's hard to notice growth like that when you see the tank and corals every day. I was actually looking for the pics of my sump and fuge for another memeber and was floored when I looked at the pics I posted in Oct. My computer is right next to my tank so I looked at the pics and turned around and could not believe it.

That hawkins colony looks amazing. What a beautiful coral. At that rate it will fill up your 120 nicely in no time.

I think I will pick up a hawkins this weekend. I have wanted that and the Pearlberry. I got the Pearlberry a couple weeks ago, so it may be time for hawkins now.
