75 gallon reef

Jus set up a 75 gallon tank. I have around 70# of LS and maybe 30-40# of LR. I'm going to get base rock tomorrow to add to it. I'm wanting to do a reef tank. Any stocking ideas..?

Nice tank though. How long u had it?

This one has been set up for a week. Not the first salt I've set up. But it is MY first salt tank. And I'm wanting to go with coral.

If it's not cycled yet, I'd get that fish out & do a fishless cycle. It'll happen much faster than trying to cycle a tank that size with one little fish.......... not to mention being more humane on the fish.

It's cycled. I've tested water and it's all good. I used sand from my brothers old tank.

Good deal. As far as coral stock, what kind of light is that?

That's a lot to put on a new system. Try holding off for a while. Good start btw.
