New Tank

Hi all,

Its been a while since I have posted here, but I recently purchased a 265 gallon perfecto aquarium, and getting rid of my 180. I should have the tank this Thursday. I'm doing black sand with a black background and plenty of live rock, as soon as the rock cures I'm considering adding a couple of yellow tangs and a flame angel. Other than that I'm not sure what else I'm going to be adding. I was curious to see if anyone has any pics of saltwater aquariums with black sand.

Thanks for the imput, but I'm very eager to get it up and running because I never had a tank with black sand and I'm curious to see what it looks like.

That's not my tank its just one that I knew of that used black sand. I'm pretty sure it's a nano but it gives you an idea of what it looks like.
