Nice! And for sand, I would have to recommend caribsea oolite sand. I have 150lbs in a 150 for a stingray which I'm getting soon, and it's so fine it's like mud. It's amazing looking also. I added four bags at the same time without wasing it at all(I turned the pumps off for a half hour) and now it's crystal clear. Really easy.

Really? Did you have to clean it at all? Most importantly, how much per bag?:/ haha

Went ahead and bought 50 lbs of PFS for 10$. I know it wont be enough, but we will just go and see. Also bought a 32gallon trashcan for washing sand and mixing salt. Afterwards, it will live out its life as a recycling bin

How hard is it to wash this stuff?

I didnt wash mine. Get a water bottle and cut the top off. Add sand half way then add water. See how cloudy it gets and if it's just a slight haze then a couple rinses will do. Mine was crystal clear so no need to rinse for meh
