No kidding! I don't think folks realize just how much of an investment LR is......I lucked out with my last tank set up....the store was going out of business so I got cured LR for $3 a pound.

Make sure you fill with ro/di water....your lfs should have it.

Yeah already got a Ro/Di filter from airwaterice.com I have it setup now just really dont like where I have setup but that can be changed later. Made some water with it already. Havent made a full bucket yet because I dont know how long it can sit in the bucket until I mix it and when I will be ready to add it to the tank. All I really have left to buy now is the LS, LR, and the heaters.

hehe....like your helper! Glad you have a refractometer...the swing arm ones aren't very exact. When do you think you'll start filling?

When comparing live rock prices just keep in mind that Live Aqauaria has great quality rock with lots of coraline compared to others from what I found. Even if its a few bucks more. I also ordered from http://www.intmarinefish.com/ and the rock is carribbean instead of fiji it was a bit cheaper but after like a year there is little to no coraline algae where the fiji from Liveaaquaria is covered in it.
