Yeah that stuffs a big ol' waste IMO

As far as a cycle you probably won't see much of one bringing rock from an established tank

yeah, I dont expect to see any kind of spikes, the live rock from one of my other tanks should be sufficient.
Im dosing phytoplankton to the tank, to feed the one feather duster that was attatched to one of the LR peices.. and the hermits I threw in there.

Just gotta get my temps right, I picked up a Hydor Theo 150w heater, and placed it in the sump. I set it to 78, but its just not powerful enough to heat the whole thing, so its keeping it at around 75.. Gonna adjust to 82 on the heater, and see how it does then.

This is going to be a coral frag/growout tank, there will only be 1 fish in this tank, if at all.. I only plan on housing a very small Brown Scopas Tang, to help keep the hair algea problems down, because this tank will have 400w of lights on it for 12hrs a day..

Forgot to add a picture of the sump and the sump lighting.. so here they are.



The lights are just a standard 10g fixture mounted to the bottom of the stand.

Very nice tank, I love it! What kind of overflow box is that and how is it working? I've been researching about overflow boxes to do a tank for my uncle, but I'm quite concern about the noise level some boxes produce

Henry the overflow box is just a standard overflow with a U shaped tube that goes from the in tank overflow, to a HOB overflow box and then the water drains down to my sump.
