Got some Fiji Pink sand. couldn't do the washing part. It was just too disgusting for me. I got four bags to hold me over temporarily. I'm thinking one more bag will be it. Picked up a few acrylic scrubbers to take the coralline algae off. Bought some glue to glue a couple of parts.

Picking up fish, corals and light tonight... I think I'll be waiting until Sunday... Got to situate the piping from the sump. I'm clueless. Going to see if the guy at my lfs can help me. He's been great help! Shoots me straight. I'm in love with his display tank!

It's getting put together!!! Had some stubborn algae I couldn't take off... But it's finally in the house and ready to go. If only I knew how this plumbing stuff worked. I'm taking guesses but I guess I want to be certain so I'm taking it to the lfs dude. I'm happier about my tank now that it's up!!!

Question: so does the sand go in before the water? Or does the water go first, then the sand and then the rock??? I guess I have enough marine books to figure it out.. Lol. But I'm at work now.

I usually do sand then water.

Put a plate on the sand bed and pour water on it so as not to disturb the sand

Sounds like a great idea! Sand first it is! I can't wait.

I'd do your rock work first then sand, then water.
