That wouldn't be a hard process to get set up. What is the best way to clean the socks?

Some use their washing machine but I just hand wash in scalding hot water and let them air dry (no soap just water)

Busy day today! I got the rock, sand, and equipment from my friend so i got that all set up. The rocks i got even came with a couple of corals a Monitora and another one which is unidentified (pic below). I also got the fish that were in her tank as well, a Yellow Clown Goby and a Flametail Blenny.

What do you all think?

So exciting!! Hey! I have a Pom Pom crab too!! He's so cute. I spot feed mine with the PH off and he catches it out of the turkey baster. Like your goby and blenny too!

Thanks everyone! I'm debating whether or not to build up the rock a little higher since at the highest point it's only half way to the top.

All the rock I have is so cavernous and there so many caves I kinda wish I was small enough to play around in the tank lol. Kinda weird but I'm sure somebody understands lol.
