Dave's cadlights 39g build

Just got my Cadlights 39g tank. Came with the lights, sump pump, stand and that's it. I want to get a bubble magus, about 40lb of live sand, 50-60lb of live rock.

I think its more like 1-1.5 per gallon on sand. Its the rock that's 1.5-2.0 per gallon.

Yep, you can start as soon as you have your rock. Skimmer & lights aren't needed now, but I would put in whatever filter media you will be using, so it too can build up the beneficial bacteria.

Yep, if thats what you'll be using. Anything that will be in the filtration system should be in for your cycle. Filter pads, bio balls, carbon whatever...
