getting started

So I set up the new tank last night. 75g. I put in 30# of live rock to start, may add more later on. Added my live sand and water. The rock came with a couple of urchins on it so already a little life going on. Here is a pic.

Hi and welcome! Looks good, but depending on how you stock it you will need more live rock for sure. Usually people suggest at least a pound per gallon, but of course that all depends on how you stock it, too. Looks like a great start though! Do you have a test kit so you can keep track of the cycle?
