I've got about 140lbs. of base rock hangin' out (not using all of it, and it is ULTRA porous). I'm going to use enough of it to just about fill the tank, and then I'll add the LR
on top of it. Substrate is aragonite sand, approx 4-5", and filtration is DSB
, and a Berlin XL powered by a mag-drive 9.5. I know about leaving lights off during cycle, but if I get any hitchhiking corals or anything, I want to at least have _some_ light available if I want to kick it on. I've got an RO
6-stage and I'm hoping this will inhibit at least some of the algal growth.
