So here i go. Got this tank from a friend. Took me about 3 months to get all the stuff together. 65gal reef ready tank, 2 t5 Ho with actinic. 2 large power heads. About 70 to 80 lb of fine live sand.
I have only out half the sand in as of yet waiting to get my hands on some base rock the I will add the sand that's left

if it's nice porous rock, i would buy it. hitch hikers are over-rated and in many cases, it's better to add the ones you like and leave out the ones you don't. you don't have that privilege with live rock.
