Thanks! Yeah this is the most patient I have ever been when setting up a tank. In my freshies I have always gone fish in cycle but with this being my first saltwater figured I would try fish less so much waiting but worth it I believe. Gave me time to do more research and build everything correctly. Going to look at little guys today! Can't wait to have something to look at besides rock!

I've been watching since I've got a 30 gal I want to work with and am amazed that it's all settled in since the end of January.

I thought it took longer than that ??

Looking Good!! Got any friends yet? If you want to add more rock to the Sump I say go for it, but you got so much on top that you can wait for a while if money is a problem.

Have fun with your tank. I love mine, but hate doing water changes. I do it anyway, so it stays clean!! :-p

Thanks. Yeah the boss lady aka girlfriend had to have her "Sharkbait" in there so got a pair of clowns. Yeah I added the 10lb of rock to the sump so I have about 60lbs total between dt and sump also added some algae to the sump can't remember what kind it is now but I'll take some pics in a bit. Also added a few corals in the main tank
