How many lbs of rock. I am planning on doing the same setup today. How many lbs of live sand. Did you buy the water already mixed or did you mix it yourself? 347 236 8100

TBH, I am not sure how many pounds of live sand I have. I originally had a 28 bowl and transferred around 3/4 over to the new tank. In regards to live rock, I probably have around 15lbs-17bs of live rock. I actually just took 2lbs out this morning. Lol.

I mix the water myself. Instant ocean reef crystals.

Update: I no longer have the Coral Beauty Angel, I ended up trading it for some ZOA Frags. I felt bad keeping the angel is such a small tank, which was my fault :(


not sure if I want to buy another small fish, or just stick with 2 clown fish and one sleeper gold head.

nice tank. It is interesting. I don't necessarily agree with them but the biota people believe that their coral beauty angel is fit for a 10 gallon tank. I think you did the right thing. I think the bigger the tank the better for any fish.
How long have you had ur tank going?
