MiamiLeos first ever reef tank build!
Just got the setup, 57 gallon rimless with all the bells and whistles. I was hesitant at first but I'm happy to have it now. It was hell to move by myself but so worth it! It's got 50 lbs of live sand (I think I'm going to have to get more, seems a bit shallow) and two large live rocks along with a bunch of baby hermits and some turbo snails. One of the rocks is submerged in a tub because it's got a little red mushroom on it that I hope makes it until tomorrow afternoon when I fill the tank. I'm really happy to see that it's got some coralline growing on the bottom and the rocks have a bit as well. I can't wait to get this baby up and running tomorrow. I'll post some more pics when I add the dry rock (from the incredible Marco Rocks). Should I add the rock first, then fill or fill first? I'm a little worried that without the water to support it, the rock will tumble.. Anyways, here's an empty pic
