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

This process isn't necessary. Just keep that rock in your tank and the corraline will spread on its own. I never had it added a corraline rock that I paid extra for btw lol, and now its all over and making its way on my glass. Just let nature take its course and its a lot less work for you lol

Those rocks look amazing, beautiful scape!
And the cowrie - is it a snail? Does it grow big? Such a cool-looking guy.

I love your cowrie, I'm going to go look for one too now xD. I agree with ballin crew, all of my LR did not have coraline and its starting to spread like crazy. The LR hasn't even been in my tank for more than 3 weeks.

Well epuerto i can say i pretty much sat here and read this thread to get caught up on your build, mainly because ive just started a very similar one. Only difference is im 10 gals smaller and its a pent front.

my plan for my CUC is looking pretty similar to yours. I would recommend going for some clowns down the line when you get all these wacky numbers figured. Just curious i dont know if i missed it but what kind of sand did you use?? my friend has a tank that it took us weeks of mystery deaths and crazy numbers and it ended up the sand was wrecking havok did a swap for live sand and we leveled all the numbers. Will def keep following this thread ive been doing sw for sometime and this build is helping me alot for a corner build.
