Looking good! You'll be done before you know it. This is where the fun really starts.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Definitely!

If all goes well, I will move over the rock either tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks!

Ok, I put in a lot of water and added enough salt today. I didn't fill it up all of the way because I plan to include the water that is in the garbage bin with my LR right now.

My goal is to move over a good amount of rock from my 55g (most/all will go into refugium). I also would like to move over all of the rock I bought from Liveaquaria.

Thanks for viewing the thread!

Do I have enough LR to instant cycle? I doubt it, but I figured I would check.

45lbs- from LA
About 50 lbs- from 55g

Thanks.

Thanks everyone!!

I have yet another question . Could I get clams for this tank with my lighting? If so, could I only get one? Thank you.
