it depends on how deep you want your sandbed to be. I used 80 pounds of sand and started with 90 lbs of liverock. I ended up adding more lr about a week after I started cycling......the tank didn't have enough rock to suit me.

Looking forward to the pics!

I'd hop on that liverock pronto......I hear you on the fish. Oh well, you'll find something even better in a few months.

Looks great! My only caution is to monitor the output on the skimmer.....it looks pretty close to the edge of the tank.....I found out the hard way. I thought I left enough room from the edge of the sump and skimmer output...I was wrong. SW everywhere.....yuk!

Your basic power strip with surge will do, I would get one with a nice thick power cord.

Finaly got it filled up with water. Got the sand poored in and now it looks like a big bowl of brown water LOL. Whish it would clear up so I can move the sand and even it out. Going to have to raise my skimmer in my sump some how to get it some of it out of the water. Was going to get pictures but the wife has the camera on a trip.
