have any meds been used while the tank was used as a QT? what are the dementions of this tank?
the rock you got is dry rock? if so, i would let that cure a bit then eventually add a small piece of rock or a few pieces of rubble. you'd get a nice mixture of life off that compared to a bag of live sand sold out of drfosters. if you could get a small culture of sand from a tank thats usually a good thing too. ive got a good population of spaghetti worms in my sand and thats just not something that comes out of a bag of "live sand" as well as pods and so on. i would just be sure its coming from a good friends tank, and even then inspect (QT, dip, treat if need be ) everything before putting it into your system.

This was just a Q tank. I only used hyposalinity as a treatment method in this tank.

The dimensions of the 16 bow are 20x18x13 (12 at the walls, because this a bow). I am thinking of LED lights. Marineland makes a Reef capable 18" model.

Sorry about the link, can't hyperlink on my phone.

My buddy is going to trade me some live rock for dry rock, and give me a scoop of his sand when I start this.
