No need to apologize I need to start reading my own posts at least once before I hit submit

IMO I wouldn't weigh it now since it is aquascaped how you want it. More experienced reefers can probably look at your tank and estimate how much you have.

Yes, they seem to think they can. That would be my reason to weigh it! HA!! :P

I mean technically there would be a way to measure the displaced water volume, as long as you had a baseline for how much water 1 lb displaces. You should be able to get close

Wouldn't that still require pulling all the rock out? Or draining the tank & measuring how much water was in there? Either way, you'd have to remove all of the water OR all of the rock to see/measure the diff. Might as well weigh it! Plus IDK if all my rock came from the same source or what density it is or would even be able to guess the density due to not knowing what type of rock it is. But yeah, if I had no scale. Water displacement could be a good measure!
