It was a struggle to adjust the rocks on the egg crate as they are glued together so I guess that is a good thing. Lol

Pet smart currently has a bucket of instant ocean salt on sale for about forty bucks. I didn't pick any up but I am contemplating it.

I don't have enough pfs and forgot to pick some up. I will get some later. Going to put in what I have and start this cycle tomorrow!

Inch and a half is good. If you plan to have a pistol shrimp or goby, I would recommend two inches.

I like it. I'd add more sand if it were me. That's just me and I like the pistol shrimp

Because sometimes I think I'm a genius I think of stuff and then I realize I am in fact NOT a genius.

That being said.... I was/am going to wash the sand in the tank. I'll see how much it compacts. Stupid idea .but I'm currently too lazy to take it back out.

I was thinking of doing a fish in cycle. A little fish with a small bioload. Any thoughts?

Just thought I'd share....

"Cleaning" the sand in the tank is a really stupid idea
