    All rocks are in but need to be rearranged. Water was to cloudy for me to see so I just set them all in the tank. Including the ones from the 55 cause I took all the sand out of it. I'm tired and don't want to think abouy tanks anymore. Dredding tomorrow cause I have to get it running tomorrow.

    Got the plant stuff out of the old sump and picked out as many aptasias as I could find then stuck it in the new sump. All I have to do now is finish filling it up and get the fish in.

    So far the rock has been in and out of the tank like 3 times. I still hate how I have the rock set up to. It looks to clustered and I have no idea how to fix it. Grrrrr

    Ya, for things to get a film on them and stuff, seems any time I set up a new sup system, fresh or salt it has a break in time where its noisy as heck and slowly quiets down.

    Its getting there!
    Gotta find some dry hatian or fiji rock to fill in the rest, those have the best shapes IMO.
    Let me know when you want to swing by and grab some fixtures to light it till you get your LED's
