Sandbed is 1.5 inch. It is supported by 2 eggcrates that I zip tied together so my rocks will not fall when my watchman digs around.

I'm on my second week. I might have screwed myself by over dosing ammonia. Just took about 10 gallons out of my tank and refilled it with RO/DI. I did this only because not only can I not measure ammonia, I can't measure salt and mixed up a 55 gallon batch of 1.044 water.

Well, at least you don't have fish in there yet! Better to make mistakes now then when you have $500 worth of fish and coral in it!

I'm jealous of you, btw. I want to be cycling a saltwater tank right now too. Must... Have.... Patience! Ugh...

Lol, don't be. I already made those hundred dollar mistakes. My 36 gal is running smoothly. It needs to be in the 55 though...that and I need to throw a rig together for my lighting and move cash around so I can get my last radion.
