Pics of my 30 gallon....
 
I just started this last Friday here is what is going on so far:

10-12lbs of Tonga live rock (very colorful I think it is one of the best)
10lbs of CaribSea Live sand
20lbs of CaribSea dead Aragonite (layered with the live sand)
salinty is 1.024
temp is at 78 F

2 red reef crabs

I am going to let my tank do its thing hopefully it will cycle fairly quickly. I have a 40 gallon triple filter and plan on getting a small powerhead later and a T-5 bulb, I do plan on having both reef and fish, any suggestions would be appreciated.http://fishforum.com/userpix/4178_tank_3_1.jpg

Why so little live rock? Generally you should stock 1lb/gallon, but I would suggest 1.5 - 2lbs per gallon.

Otherwise, it looks great. Keep us updated.

I plan on adding more rock later I think between what I have and the live sand I will be OK during cycling I plan on putting another 10lbs
