Yeah I know doesn't look like 40 pounds, actually it's a little less. I weighed it all on a digital shipping scale and it was right around 37.9lbs. Then I took some of it and broke it down to rubble and put it in the top of the Eclipse hood where the carbon bag would normally sit, right before the dreaded Bio-Wheel!
I plan on getting some more after the tank is finished cycling to bring it up to around 50lbs. This time I'm getting cured LR ... this was all Un-Cured!!!!!
