55g FOWLR up & running! (PICS)

My first FOWLR & first saltwater tank. Got my 60lbs of Aragonite in two days ago, threw 35lbs of eco dry Fiji in there and added 40lbs of live Fiji last night.

After the huge sandstorm settled, here's what it looks like, thanks for all your help on here!

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Now the wait begins but I'm headfirst into researching a good stocklist, clean-up crew & general upkeep.

I wish yellowtailed damsels & clowns got along better as I love both fish, but have read too many negatives about fighting. I also wish there was a dwarf variation of the blue hippo tang, that would be #1 on my list.

Any advice on a good clean-up crew on my tank & if they should come before or after the fish?

Thanks again,
Joe

I kept a yellow tail with a pair of clowns for a long time with no issues. I don't suggest it just was my experience.

I really like the rock structure btw!

If you are not going to do corals I think a coral beauty or a flame angel would look nice.
