I plan on putting in 50 (maybe 100) lbs of base rock with the 250lbs of sand. Then I'll fill it halfway and make sure it holds. Then in the next couple days I'll add say 50lbs of LR in and fill it the rest of the way up. I'll be testing the whole time too. Then I'll move half of whats left in the 55g in the next day or two and if all is well I will add the last of the rock and move the fish over.

I'm not too sure about the corals yet, I'm gonna want everything to be just so before I start that project. lol

Wolf, I caught your thread. She should be fine til you get home sunday. remember people actually cycle with these fish so they are hardy.

Yep I plan on using the python for the emptying but I gotta go by 4g buckets for filling it. LOL i can't lift any more than that. I was thinking of getting a garbage can and a pump to help. Just not in the budget. As usaul
