When I come back from School I will siphon out the sand on the rock. Then I will take a pic!

UH-OH! I just saw a little red worm thing struggling in the tank. It did not look like a bristle worm but i don't know what it is. I'll get a pick of it when I get home. And clean the rock.

a turkey baster (sp?) works well for squirting the sand off the rocks.

IT CLEARED UP...again...again

The water cleared(need to get alittle sand off but they are fine for now). I made a cool rock structure with rubble rock pieces that where fair in size. I made 2 caves and I don't have any great plans on how to make them good for corals but it will come to me in good time. LOL ya bear I was like oh wait if this is bad and you gave me the rock you must have way more then I started to think that you could Identify it since you had better skills lol.
I took an ammonia test and it is at .50 mg/L. My salinity is at 1.0255 for now since I used pre made water and I will bring that down later.
For a CUC I was thinking 2 Nassarius and maybe 1-2 Trochus(after cycle and diatom). And after that later on maybe 1-2 Sexy shrimp. Then for livestock
Fish: 1-2 purple Firefish if I can.
Corals: Zoas, Mushrooms, Palys, Whatever I can that strikes my eye lol.

Now for what everyone that wil ever look at this thread actually wants Pictures...why not SCIENCE?!?!?! lol

FTS:

Front Cave:

Main structure cave:

Better quality:

Ammonia test:
