Already have:
- Volitan Lion
- Singapore Angel
- Green Chromis

Plan to get:
- Harlequin Tusk (Aussie)
- Large Angel (Majestic, Annularus or Scribbled)
- Dwarf Angel (probably MultiColor)
- Flameback Dwarf Angel (maybe)
- Blue Throat Trigger (male...maybe do a pair)
- Blonde Naso Tang (male)
- Eibli Mimic Tang
- Yellow Tang
- Porcupine Puffer (kids really want one)
- Blueline Foxface
- Snowflake Eel
- Flame Hawk
- Spanish or Coral Hogfish (maybe)

Have thought about a few Anthias, but not sure how they would do with that crowd.

Place pieces of live rock or macro algae in those "wasted spaces"

Gonna be one hell of a tank. Wish I had the space for one, maybe one day when I get my own place.

This is the best shot I could get...one Brute container of rock so far. The light will be higher, so should cover more space. I'm hoping to get the sand in tonight...

Well, it was finally a day where the tank did not cause trouble and I got to do fun stuff. I got all of the sand and the rest of the rock in. Messed around with the aquascaping and got the basic layout completed. I've got a few small pieces left and might just toss those into the refugium.

Being a fan of Dr Tim's One & Only, I purchased that and got it in just now. I am using the Ammonium Chloride that they sell with it. Just dosed it up to 2.0ppm. I will report as tests are done, so people can see how this product works. I know a lot of people here are not fans of bottled bacteria, but I don't like the smell that we got the one time I did the shrimp method (my cat at the time did though) and I've used Dr Tim's twice before with zero problems.

It's coming a long great! I don't usually like the island look but in this size tank I'm assuming it would take a load of rock to fill it up lol

Looks great! Wish I could get the island look but oh well. lol

Is that all the rock you have? Or are you adding more?
