OK I've got about 40 gallons of RO
so far. My living room is filling up with buckets and bins of water! How much water do I need? This is for a 55G tank w/ 25G sump and 8G top off. So 88G minus 110 lbs of live rock and 80 lbs of sand. Is 60G enough?? I have no idea how much water the sand and rock will displace.
And I'm thinking that I'll put 20 lbs of sand in, then fill it half way with water, then place the rock, then add the last 60 lbs of sand and fill it up with water. Does that work? Is the water going to get so cloudy that I can't see where I'm aquascaping? Any aquascaping pearls of wisdom from the BTDTs?
Thanks as always!
