Rock On

We have entered the 2nd stage of Project Aquarium, the addition of water and live rock.  The rock is from Florida, and has been cured and scrubbed by someone much more knowledgeable than I am.  I was told it produced quite a smell.

Live Rock is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.  Hopefully nothing bad hitched a ride and survived the scrubbing.  We'll see though.

This week we are letting everything settle, and hopefully in a few days the water measurements will allow us to add fish.  As we have 2 small children, we will be going with a couple of Clown Fish and a maybe Blue Tang ( Dory).  I saw maybe as my quick research shows they may not be the best neighbors or fit in my tank well as adults.
