Powerheads

I was told the flow needs to be 10xgallons for fish only and 20xgallons for reef.

The power head I have I can not seem to find any markings on to find out what it is. It is still dirty so could be under the salt but is there an easy way to tell?

the silver label on the powerhead should state a model or flow rate.
the "spare light" looks like it may have been there refugium light.

i suggest pouring vinegar into a 5 gallon bucket to clean this stuff. remove any o-rings or rubber pieces before doing so and let everything soak atleast a few hours - day.

pure vinegar or a vinegar/water mix? I was going to hand scrub everything but if I can let it sit in a bucket, EVEN BETTER!

pure vinegar will be stronger but a diluted mix still works. i try keeping it close to its full strength.

I would like to hear some opinions on where to buy base rock, live rock and live sand.

Does live sand ever have the unwanted life like live rock sometimes does?

I want to do the majority of my rock as base/dry rock and maybe 10% live rock.

I was looking at buying THIS plus 25 lbs of Live rock but I don't like that the sand is coarse or fine (I read up and decided medium grain)

Opinions are welcome.
