The fish are smart. They will move out of the way when you add the rest of the rock. And the used to live in the ocean. What's a little sand storm to them?

Got my return plumbing redone, I am soo very proud of myself. May go back to Lowes and get some 1 inch connectors and stuff and do the intake side over too. I managed to get ONE rock into the tank today. LOL I've got maybe 80-90lbs so far and it looks kinda full already. Was hoping to go "up" with the rockscape this time and have some height to the structure. I have also been dreading doing the sand rinsing. I know I have to do it, just have no gusto to go do it. lol That is gonna be the hardest part, the sand....and it's gonna delay my fish ordering this week.

Very nice! I will probably have trouble with my plumbing, lol. It looks really good, .

The sand rinsing does sound like a pain, but think of how good you will feel once it is all done.
