agreed, you only have 30 lbs in a 45 gallon tank. even buying base rock wouldn't hurt

yeah I kind of did miss that. You could definitely use some more LR. Usually you want about 1.5 to 2 lbs per gallon for good biological filtration.

well i ended up getting a lemonpeel angel. i was planning on another 15 lbs to bring the total up to 45 lbs of live rock in my 45 gal tank but the selection just wasnt there today. and im not buyin my lights from the lfs im going to get them from drfosters or ebay if i can find a good deal. if i find some lighting that im planning on getting ill run it by you guys first just so i know for sure what im getting. but my lemonpeel just cost me $50 and the lights are marked up also. the lfs i go to has the best selection for fish but they are a lot more expensive than say a petco but i just dont trust petco anymore. and i still got 25 left on the card and then some of my own money so ill be pickin up more live rock when they get in another good shipment.

and no where in the local des moines area sells base rock..... so i have to go all live rock which is a lot more expensive for me. i know i could get it online but with the shipping costs its just not worth it.
