Yes they said yes!!! I just can't ask for anything from then dealing with aquariums for the next two months! I can use my own money but nit theirs that I didn't earn. But I'm getting them, if the dimensions of the stand are correct!

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

Yup and I got some more filters and gravel! Never can have too many of those. That'll save me from when I'm going to set up my 12 gallon for my room!

20 bucks says you end up doing extra stuff for more money, so you can set your tank up quicker...without a doubt. This tank will be cycling before we know it hahaha

Yeah probably, I would love to have it up and running ASAP but I don't know if I could do everything that is required that quickly... But I did find some sand for 4.15 for 50 lbs of sand today at home depot!

Once you get the stand you could always start your cycle so that way whenever you get around to buying fish, ytour water will be stable

Yeah but before I start to cycle I'll need some live rock and base rock which cost a decent amount...

You can start with just base rock if you're gonn ahve time. Just dose the ammonia.

The base rock will become live within a few weeks. It won't look like "normal" live rock for a few months but it can be done
