So, 425 would be better. Ok. Also, I forgot to mention that the filter will be an aquaclear 30. (I like that size on a 10) and with the stronger powerhead I probably don't want all the extra filter flow. What should I run in it? Just sponge and biomax, or all 3?

That was my thinking, but we'll see what she says. Also, how much live rock to base rock will I need? It'll all wind up LR in the end right?

Alright, that sounds good to me. So I'm going for about 15 I guess, so maybe 9 base to 6 live, or is that too much?

Ok... So maybe less lol, I think I'll have to order online, but there's a saltwater store about 40 minutes away. I don't think it sells LR though.
