Haha ya! Woohoo! Maybe we can pick up snape on saturday?! Yes. I want to name him snape..like in harry potter lol. Name is fitting!

Nitrates look to be 10-20, and ammonia is a solid 0!!

Ok, now we need to redo the rock to make it perfectly stable, dig it into the sand alot more, and make up alot of PWC water!!

Are we allowed to turn on the protein skimmer now?? Should we have it break in by itself?

I wouldnt turn it on until you have a fish in there. Are you going to move the fish from the 30 first?

No we are going to add all o the live rock today (good idea???) and put the coral in the 30 on the sand bed and keep a rock in there for the pistol. Then we will add the goby this weekend after we do our water change... Then turn on the protein skimmer and let it work its magic. Good ideazz?

I don't think you should add all the rock at once, maybe half today half tomorrow.
