It's Alive (Well. . . soon, hopefully)!

I've had freshwater aquariums for years. This is my first venture into saltwater. 90 gallon AGA. 133lbs of Live Rock. Day 2. I'm really looking forward to "watching it grow."

Nice looking start! I hate to ask, but is that CC in the bottom?

No cement. They sit, and are locked, pretty tight. As I'm sure most everyone here knows: It took 3 hours one day, 2 hours the next, and 2 more hours after that to get it how I wanted it.

As far as the substrate goes: I read a few books, read a lot of posts on the forum, and asked a lot of questions at my lfs. But I am just a rookie in this avenue of the hobby. I'm told it is not cc. It is aragonite based Fiji live sand. One third live, two thirds dry.

Thanks for the comments. All comments are welcome as that is the best way to learn.
Rick
