Would a 200 watt heater be okay or do I need to use a 100-150 along with it?

This sand is really sweet.

40 pounds went really far but I'll grab some more for good measure.

I can tell its been in the ocean, shells and stuff all over.
Really white, I would recommend reef rocks for sand...can't tell you about the rock yet lol...

I'm thinking a blue background will be nice.

Thanks!

I can't wait to get it going soon.
Last things I need are a refractor meter and my base rock.
