i ordered 50lbs of rock from reefrocks.net and 80lbs of reef sand.
i talked to the owner first and he was very friendly. and they got my order out immediately. just got my tracking.
do you know if 80lbs of sand will be enough for a 60x24x18 tank if i don't want a thick bed?
also, i think i've decided to pass on the fx5 as i need more $ to fund all this start up. the 4 HOB
filters cover the entire surface of the water and output 400gph each (at least they're rated for that). i can definitely cover a lot more surface area with them and i'm familair with them.
