That was onegarbage can full, I have another whole can of rock. I am mixing saltwater now so I can move the rock into fresh water and cherry pick some nice pieces.
Theres about 150lbs in so far, so was gonna add another 50 or so lbs. The rest of the rock will go into the 60g, the cube and anything left over after that will go into the 90g.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Looks good so far! It's funny how we are almost exactly on the same schedule. I spent hours today getting my rock in and have some of the scaping done too.

Nice Todd, I will have to check out your thread when you post the pictures.

I rearranged yet again and I am getting happy as far as looks. I'm sure I will be changing it a bit more but this is where I am right now. There are a few stray rocks, just gotta find them a home somehwere. lol

Oh, I almost forgot! I tested the water and its 0 across the board. I'm guessing the rock cycled out in the garbage cans. woot! Just gonna keep an eye on the parameters for another week or so and then i think it will be good to add some stuff slowly. My goal is to have all the fish from the 125g in by the end of next month. I still want to introduce a copperband and a filefish first though, they will be my first fish. AS for corals, not sure what I will move over when. I have a 10g tank full of frags that arent doing too well and would love to give them a more permanent home. They are under a 12w led par38 bulb so its kinda limiting.
I'm also torn between getting 2 more tangs OR one more tang and a foxface of some kind. lol I have some time though, unless I go with the foxface, which would have to go in before the tangs.

I would go Foxface and Tang, but maybe do something a little different for the Foxface (Black or Magnificent or Bicolor).

What were you considering for that split or if going with two more Tangs?
