Tooth brush! I didnt think of that!

Do you guys think I have too much rock? The two live rocks that came with the tank were way bigger than I thought they'd be

It's 50lbs of dead rock from Marco Rocks plus the two live which are probably about 5-7lbs each. It's a 57gal tank.

So not too much? It doesnt seem too crowded? I see that a lot of reef tanks have several inches between the rocks and the tank wall, mine are about one inch from the wall on the sides, nearly touching in the back, and anywhere from one to three inches away in the front.

The more Live Rock the better! Live Rock harbors denitrifying bacteria deep within their structures, so the more live rock, the better your natural filtration.

Thanks guys, I like the rock a lot too. Just wanted to be sure there was enough room for fish! lol

Pearl - The rock is all from Marco Rocks. They are fantastic!!! Great prices, free shipping, and it was at my door in literally 24 hours!
