Lol pretty much what I was thinking. I can't wait to see this tank with some fish in it.

You and me both!

The water has probably cleared up about 3 times, but I have made it cloudy again when I have to add sand or blow off the rocks. But now it is almost clear.

Pics to come later today.

Tank is still VERY dusty, but here are a few pics. Not much more because it is all base rock.

Nice aqua scaping. How many LBS will you be using in there of the BR and how many LBS or the LR (if any)?

Well, those 50lbs in there right now are all considered base rock, but the rock I got from liveaquaria listed the 35lbs as foundation rock (rock that is live, just with no special lighting). The liveaquaria rock also has some light coraline on it.

I do not know how much LR I will be using from my 10G yet. I want to say 15-20lbs though.

And I tested my ammonia and nitrites yesterday for the first time. You can be the judge...

Ammonia: Off the charts at more than 8ppm
Nitrites: 1ppm

It's looking good! I can see why Diddy will be taking a back seat to this project...

Once the cups get in, then I guess I can get him.

...Maybe. There is a Black Clownfish at the LFS I have my eye on...

Thanks.

Last update of the year:
Tank is starting to show some light diatoms on the sand. Hopefully I'll get the bloom within the next day or so.

And lastly...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
