No that's only 50# then I added the other 50#. The cost was $205 shipped. Not bad for sand and rock.

Yeah that's a killer deal. Post pics with all 100lbs. In my tank now I have about 90lbs of skeleton corals and red horns. Also have about 30lbs of l/r. I'm planning on removing everything except the l/r and adding another 100lbs.

Wow the sand looks great!!! Like I said I just ordered 40lbs myself from them...

Do you have to do any prep work to the sand so it does not become cloudy in the tank!?

It took 2 weeks for my rocks and sand to arrive. These are good affordable rocks and sand. Its in my reef tank now.

If i was doing a FOWLR, then i would order fiji base rocks from BRS. It looks better compared to the regular base florida rocka.

I purchased reefrocks because i planned to let zoas grow all over my rocks. No point in covering up good looking rocks
