New 40g Build!!!

Updating the 29g into a 40g breeder

Stock:
2 Clownfish (from the 29g)
1 SixLine Wrasse
1 Midas Blenny
1 Goby (undecided which kind)

I will need new aragonite substrate and around 10lbs of base rock...will be adding pieces of life rock to help with the cycle.

Any good websites that will save me some $$?

I am expecting about 100 pounds of rock from them. Got a couple boxes of sand today.

If I remember right you only need to buy 25 pounds to get the free sand. You have to pay about 15 dollars for shipping though. By far the cheapest dry rock i've found.

If you want something different, check out bulkreefsupply. They have tonga branch and different types of dry rock. More expensive though. I am expecting about another 80 pounds from them.
