I ordered four more bags of sand to hide where the window tint doesnít go all the way down. My last tank was a reef and had a lot more sand. The tint on the back is going to be replaced with one that isnít see-through at all.

Rocks still need to go in and Iíd really like to add them today, but figure Iíll wait until the rest of the sand is in place.

With the bioload 20 Lupota fry will create and the volume of water you have I am certain your beneficial bacteria will multiply at a rate that will keep ahead of any toxic ammonia or nitrite levels 👍
