Ok well I think you need to put the brakes on and start reading up on getting started again you should have 1-1.5 lbs per gallon of rock and have you read about cycling and the nitrate cycle..one thing with a successful SW tank is patience

But back to your original question if you have that little rock and flow then your water parameters will almost undoubtedly become unstable quite quickly

I don't mean start you tank over I meant start over on the learning process..you should read up on how to start and run a SW tank from start to finish before you go any further with you tank other then up your rock and circulation

The last thing you want is to have a finished tank and hundreds maybe thousands tied into it just for it to get nuked by something that could have been avoided
