Yes you can. You want to leave enough swimming room for your fish, but go for the look that makes you happy. The more the better IMO. I have 2 pds per gallon, and want to get a little more.

You doing reef or fish only? I think rock recommendations depend on that.

I had roughly 60lbs of live rock in a 20 high when it started it cycled fast got stable fast and my levels never really jumped around.

when I started adding corals I just took it out and set up another tank with the rock I took out of it.... now I've got a 10 gallon that has at least 20lbs in it.

so, yeah you can add whatever you want really.....

You can put in as much as you want. I have over 140lbs in my 72gal and I am looking at ways of adding more.

So, what does "16" have to do with anything??

Oh yeah, I see it now. Funny, I remember reading that the post was from Minnesota, and I'm thinking how cold it might be. Never looked at the name. Duh.

i am going to start with fowlr in a 75 gal and then move to reef, with a protein skimmer with a sump (put more lr in the sump) and a magunm 350 for mechanical filtertration

The 16 is for the day of my birthday and my age
