Haha yea our thread is pretty informational, because we ask alot of questions!! Im thinking we will be done in another 8-10 days. We are getting close!!!
Ok that sounds good. I think I'm also going to go with rock then sand I have another question lol how would you place power heads? I've read that one pointing up for gas exchange and one pointing at the glass. I've also heard that there can't be any dead spots in the tank. Is this info good?

Congrats on the tank! Ok, I thought so too, but the cost of everything is a set back. Not to mention the tank is currently freshwater. Thanks for your input!
