    Looks great! I am really envious of the black sand, is it live?

    Thanks Guys, I am really excited for this build and have done tons of research and put a lot of thought into how it will run. Waiting on the cycle is the hardest part, patience is a virtue I do not posses but this hobby sure helps teach me it! I am definately going slow and doing this right to provide the best possible eco system for my fish and corals that are to come.

    I used 30 lbs of Pukani Live Rock and 40 lbs of that black hawaiian live sand. That rock sure is nice and porous, and it locks together beautifully.

    Looks like a great start. I'm going to have to keep an eye on this one.

    Thanks guys, I will keep this thread updated as I progress through the hobby. I slid the aquascape structure an inch or so to the right as its slightly off center and it was bugging me!
