Ok, no glass on the display. I may put one on the sump. I will try to cut down on the return noise. Update is two raw shrimp were placed in the sump today at 12 to kick start the cycle.

Live stock options?

A clown (small)
Fire fish
Dwarf wrass
Goby
Benny??????
Two shrimp
Two crabs (Pom Pom for sure)

Coral,

Will start with some nice Zoe's and recordia. Then work I. My way up. Will like to try some color sticks down the road! Super happy. Can't wait to get some life in this tank

New 30 gallon reef build!

Lots of bubbles out of return. Think I may need to hard plumb with a valve?? Or is it just dust from sand? I put sand in yesterday. Click image for larger version

Looks like your just starting. Your nitrates should be very high at the end of the cycle
