It's totally normal for Prime to smell strongly of sulfur. It smells like rotten eggs.

Ammonia 0.50 ppm
Nitrate 0.0 ppm

Targeting maybe 3 times that much rock? Looking good so far. Got some nice lookig pcs. Consider base rock too. Much cheaper and it will look like the rest of it before long.

Yes! Very good looking rock! The base rock will be seeded by the rock you already have.

Thumbs up Update 9.22.08

Just a little update I added my Clowns and 1 4 striped Damsel black and White....





My Crappy Skimmer Set up for now....


Well my 30LBs of base rock never showed up which I was upset Luckily I got my refund back... Got it from ebay Seller Stated he ran out.... I order 6 lbs of fiji rock off of ebay..... Which was very nice.... So but for now I am just going to deal with what I have.... But next week i might actually go into my LFS and pick up only 10LBs of Base rock and see how that works.... and my skimmer I would have to deal with until I have the money to actually buy a good HOB..... Well hope u like the update..... and me fihes....
