Getting close. Got the salt for it today. But want a couple more thing before I start stocking. Will prob be filling it up with in the next couple weeks.

Should I still use ro water for the first fill before the cycle or tap?

I'd start with ro/di water for sure.

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

I think I'm happy with what we did. Tried to get all the angles I could. Have 2in PVC pipe running from the bog cave in the middle to a bog hole in the rock on the right side. Had to use holdfast to help keep sone pieces together. But all in all. I like it. What do y'all think.

Kept a little room on the right side to put a little bit of live rock in there. To help the cycle.
