Sounds like you are on the right track. Your crushed coral will work fine, just know that it is more work to take care of. Food and detrutus can get stuck in between the little pieces of crushed coral and cause a nitrate problem over time. Vacuum it often and get a good clean-up crew and you will be fine. I reccommend the Berlin method also. Get 60-80lbs of live rock and add a good skimmer and your filtration needs will be met. Check out liverocks.com for some of the best LR
around. What are your plans for this tank? FOWLR
, or reef? Your lighting will be just fine for a FO
tank. If you plan to start a reef tank over time, you will need to upgrade your lighting in the future. Good Luck!
