I think the advice above is good, I would do the same thing if you are going to try it.

Get all of your other shrimp first, then get a smaller CBS. I figure that that may help with aggression.

Nu Nu, I'm looking at the Red Sea Max 250, how did you get such a great deal at $1200. What a price on an awesome tank!

Thanks guys! I think we might do that. It will be awhile ago, I bet we don't finish stocking inverts for at least another year! Lol.

Hi! We went to an Expo down ere, and the company was showing them all off. We asked about them and the guy cut us a deal! We could have gotten a used black one for 750! But my parents wanted white, so we payed the 1200 for the new white one Really good deal, and totally worth it. I'm not sure if I'd buy one for the full 1750 or whatever it is, so the deals rock, obviously.


Anyways, guys I have a couple questions. The footprint is 38 long and 21 deep. If we wanted to have a 5" DSB for this tank, how much pool filter sand should we buy for it? Also, I heard PFS is hard to wash..is this really true? Can I wash it in tap water? A rodi wash would be though!

I didn't use pool filter sand, but I wanted to share that I just used tap water to wash the sand. Some people, however, use RO/DI and reccomend that you do it that way.

It depends on the PFS brand. Mine was clean but others said theirs was dirty. Id say about 80lbs but you can use a sandbed calculator online.
