Maybe get a bunch of paper towels and just pour vinegar only all over them every 6-12hrs every day for 3 days then scrub.

Went to a local store today that sells base rock there and I found some pieces I like. What do you think about doing base rock and live rock?

I'm thinking around 100 pounds of rock total?

As well as 80 pounds of sand?

Yeah base rock should be Considerably cheaper so do 10% live and the rest base rock. Just enough live to kick start some bacteria. The sand depends on how deep of a sand bed you want. I used 120lbs for my 55g for a 3 inch deep sand bed.

You could even do no live rock at all and all base rock, if it's aesthetically pleasing (not all heavy boulders). Bacteria will grow regardless.
