90 Gallon FOWLR Start

Based on what we like, compatibility, native origin, non-aggressiveness:
1 Yellow-eyed kole Tang
1 Firefish (Schooling? Read some conflicting info online)
1 Lawnmower (Sailfin/Algae) Blenny
2 Ocellaris Clownfish, Captive-Bred
1 Blue/Green Reef Chromis
1 Royal Gamma Basslet or 1 Bicolor Dottyback
3 Banggai Cardinal Fish

Live Rock (50% Premium, 25% 1 year, 25% dry for foundation) (Curing? Quarantine? Still very unsure how this gets in)
Do we need to worry about unwanted pests coming from live rock?
If so, how do we get rid of them or ensure prevention without losing the good?

Clean-up Crew:
Emerald Crabs
Red legged Hermit Crabs
Peppermint Shrimp
Banded Cleaner Shrimp
Snail mix

90 Gallon Tank w/wooden Stand and matching Hood (Already Own)
3ea 50 gallon bags of salt (or a bulk box – 4 bags)
1 ea RO/DI filter system for the house or just the RO/DI water at $.90 per gal
2” Sandbed bottom (need help on what kind and how much)
Either a CPR CS102 overflow w/aqua lifter pump or self drilled internal overflow box w/2 drains
2ea Sicce Voyager 2 stream pumps (800 GPH)
2ea Via Aqua Titanium Heater (not sure the wattage – 300?)
2ea LED lights w/dimmer (not sure the brand you have above your 40 display in the back)
I think a 29 Gallon ecosystem tank would be the right size?
A few 12” x 18” glass paynes and DAP aquarium safe silicone for the baffle walls
A couple of filter socks (100 – 200 micron?)
20 lbs Miracle Mud (Changed out 50% per year)
Caulerpa (however much to start)
1ea Sicce Syncra silent 5.0 pump (1321 GPH)

Two 30 Gallon trash cans (one for old water and one for prep water)
Cheapy powerhead for saltwater mix circulation
Cheapy heater for temp in mix can
25’ – 50’ water siphon/vacuum for water changes
Plumbing and connectors/fittings
