I think I might just get some black sand from petco. Too bad I don't live near VA beach or I'd just go get a bucket of that sand!

Well, I think I'm just going to use my PFS. Also, since its a bigger tank I will need more flow. Do you think my 5-10 gal HOB (90 GPH), my 200GPH PH and a second HOB rated for a 20-30 gallon tank would probably be sufficient?

Transition complete!! We are going to petco to get more ocean water so I can top it off. But here it is so far!! And the extra filter will provide plenty of flow so I don't need to get another PH. Hooray!

I think I'm going to keep it empty and use it as a QT tank. I want to slowly add rummy nose tetras to my 55.

What about 3 blue chromis? I guess I need to figure out my options. Never fear! I can't get fish for like at least a month to make sure my tank is is Ich free anyway. But... I am pretty sure I can get a torch! Right?!

Chromis swim A LOT, and 2-3 fish would max out a 10g. You need a fish that doesn't need a lot of swimming room. Like a blenny or goby of some sort. You could get a goby/shrimp pair. And you could totally get a torch! Firefish are so cute and don't need a lot of swimming room, and they're not a schooling fish.

I was looking at chromis and saw they need around a 30g tank... Dang. I'm still looking around at my options. Firefish are pretty. I like a black and white striped damsel or a blue damsel with a yellow tail. I think I'm drawn to them lately because most people hate them and call them devil fish! I think one of those might need a bigger tank too.... Great. Now I need a 30g tank! Lol!

Have you looked at any possum wrasses?? They are very cool and only require 10 gallons.
