Default Got salt....?

Finally tank is full & sump is half full. Dumping 3/4 bucket of salt in the tank felt good. Salt storm!

Let the cycle begin. It will be nice when you can get the first additions added.

Just transferring my current fish\coral from the 38g cube for the now. like to get a pair of bangaii and firefish. If the small yellow tang I have currently does good in the 90 I would like to add a regal tang(dory). Do you think a 90 is big enough for a regal?
Ill be adding seaflor special grade reef sand 60lbs. I couldent go without my monster 2+" tiger pistol shrimp(lobster) hes almost dinner size

Default Aquascape

Holy crap this aquascape is going to take some serious work! pretty good mix of different rock I just have no clue where to go...... this scape may take longer than the cycle.

Default Scape

well many hrs later and this is what I came up with...... All the piece that touch the glass are cut flat. There are 5pcs glued with JB waterwweld and cyano superglue. and a few island rocks just placed on bottom.
The water is very cloudy still and the crappy freshwater LED isint helping any.
Any advice before sand? too much rock..... looks good.....I dunno
