Were would be a good place to put power heads. Was thinking one on each side facing front and one on each side facing eachother with a wave maker set up. But with the rock stack would that be enough to keep all the water moving around and random enough?

I would think that's a good start. But when it comes down to it u may have to just play with it till u get it where u want it

Hahahaha. So looks like I just might have my gf talked into letting me keep the 55g we have in our bed room. But would a picaso trigger be ok in a 55? LA says 75g minimum.

Tank looks good ,,coming along nicely

To answer your question, IMHO NO not even in a 75...minimum IMO is 125 6 footer...Everybody always talks about tangs in no less than 6 footers ,,i believe the same should be said of triggers

Sorry about the quality. Pics r with my phone.

Should I start the cycling and wait to put the sand and plant in my refugium? Or start it all at the same time?
