    Thanks, Yeah, I did throw a little of everything in there. There is a pretty active saltwater group in my area, so it is hard to not load up on livestock, with so many people fragging their corals at home. I think I am done for a while time to let stuff grow out now.

    I just took my 2 clown fish out of the QT tank and into the DT Friday, tonight the large one found the Rbta. The smaller fish looks like he is feeling left out.

    Just purchased my JBJ 28 with the intermediate LED's. Look forward to contributing in this thread! hopefully it will be running this weekend. My plans for it are to transfer everything that i can from my 55.
    one Ocellaris clown
    Royal Gramma
    Coral banded shrimp
    2 emerald crabs
    a bunch of assorted hermits
    one xenia frag and one frogspawn which isnt doing so well hopefully i can revive him.

    What are all of you guys using for flow? I have 2 Koralia Evos, one 750 and one 1400gph. I think just the 750 might be plenty.

    Also, i will be adding new sand... how much should i go with?
    Thanks

    I have both the Koralia #4 which is 1250 I think and a smaller one Koralia#2= 600. Personally I like a 1 inch sand bed.

    Sounds good, so probably like 25-30 lbs im guessing?

    Is anyone using the jbj stand? Its coming as a package deal with the tank but as i keep looking at it i cant help but think that it doesnt seem like it will be that sturdy lol
