Thanks for the advice MD, I will definitely stay around 6 fish for my final load. I'm looking to keep smaller fish that will stay under 4"-5" max growth. I will most likely get stock advice when I'm ready to start.

Ordering all my equipment now, wish me luck! I will def post progress & pics when I'm up & running!

Getting more excited, ordered all my equipment and just deciding on where to get about 80lbs of Fiji live rock. Dang this stuff is expensive.

Since this is a new tank and I'll be curing/cycling everything, would I be ok with like

35lbs of Fiji Foundation Rock Saltwater Aquarium Live Rock for Marine Reef Aquariums: Fiji Foundation Rock


45lbs of Fiji Standard Rock Saltwater Live Rock for Marine Aquariums: Fiji Standard Live Rock

How's that? Any suggestions on where to buy, I have to order online but shipping is killing me on some sites.
