Yes, I'm aware. There's a total of 70lbs of rock in there right now. I'm picking up another 25-30lbs of premium Fiji cured rock over the Thanksgiving break (been saving in a coffee jar for that for a while) and will get another 20-30lbs of base rock. I'm skimming a little on the wet size to make sure I pull all the waste out, about a half cup every 2 days.
Also, there is a mixture of "premium" rock and "seeded base rock". The premium has more coraline algae, but the base rock has actually had more life come out of it, lol, bristle worms, sponges, hermits, etc. I also seeded some copepods last week, about 500 from the LFS; got them in sponges then put the sponges in the tank for 3 days, so my rocks are crawling with copepods.
I'm still fighting with the powerheads...no matter how I turn them I always disturb the sand at the bottom after a day or so. I need like the next size up substrate, stupid oolites...
