did it come in a white burlap bag?
Florida crushed coral and as I said really only good for use in fish only setups with big fish. For a reef tank you really want something more like fine sand.
trust me, the crushed coral will trap a lot of junk and give you ongoing water quality issues.
I know from experience.

crushed coral also isn't good if you have fish like wrasses as they like to dive into the sub-strait and bury themselves and it can cut up your fish

New sump up and running! Running great and very quiet! Haven't put my protein skimmer in yet! Thinking about putting a light over the sump so I can get some growth! Also check the water last night now I'm at

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 90 or so

I'm going to change some water out today how much should I pull out? I put 7 gallons in the sump! So now I'm up to 36 gallons now

Fair enough.
I'm not trying to be a jerk, but in 5-6 months when you can't figure out why your nitrate levels stay high, remember this conversation.
