Are you going dsb in the dt? I went with about 2-3 inches in my refugium but I have about 6 inches in my tank.

cant tell if it's working yet but something is as I finally hit 0 nitrates after lingering around 2.5 for the last few months

Yep! Sure do!

Unfortunately for me, the thread never garnered much attention (probably owing to the length of my initial post lol). The tank is still sitting in my living room, dry, but that all might change tomorrow . I purchased 150 lbs of live rock from my LFS at a pretty decent price (about 4.50/lb, and supposedly it will have some coraline growth), and I intend on picking it up tomorrow morning.

Oh and for what it's worth, I've really gotten some great advice just hanging out on this thread. The inter-racial clown couple, the tang discussion (I too toyed with the idea of getting a yellow), the top off info, the snowflake eel (I had also thought of one lol), and some other things here and there.
