it looks so good already, im so proud ill take pics in a bit. i just need to get me sme purple lights. i intend to put small, low light corals in the tank-- the lightning im looking forward to is:
2 cmpct flourescents around 6000k, and a purple light. a few halogens propped up aswell. but thats a whole 'nother ocean! my tank isnt established well enough yet, nor have i the money for such an endeavor! So cute little shrimpies and a couple o fish it shall be. oh and btw whats your idea of good sand? and how expensive is it? thats a doozy-- i havent added the sand yet. so what kinds are considered pretty good sand? i like that sugary smooth looking sand--what is it? lol. thanks kindly!

I believe the majority (myself included) use tropical playsand. It's used for childrens sandboxes. It's cheap if you can find it. Just be sure it's agronite sand. Otherwise, you could talk to your local fish store to see what they have. You don't really need to bother buying the small bags of live sand since your live rock will seed the sand for you. I would suggest getting some playsand, enough for a 3-4 inch sandbed and get a bit of sand from your lfs to seed it. When adding it, use a length of pvc pipe and pour it down through to help eliminate some of the sand storm your going to get. HTH

:p i had no intention of buying live sand. im totally into the idea that its not worth it. ill just pour a bit from my established 55 gal. is there any particular brand of playsand? anything i should look out for? or if it says aragonite, its fine, yes? and the PVC pipe idea is pure genious, thank you!

Royal Gramma!!! You could maybe add one or two fish at most to the tank. Royal gramms are great, purple firefish is nice as well. I love my sixline wrasse. Honestly, skip the manderin.
