160 lbs of carab sea reef grade agra alive sand and 60 lbs of premium figi live rock to start.Uv sterilizer is a coralife turbo twits 6x.And lights consist of a 48'' coralife 4 x 65 watt power compact with lunar lights.

?

I see that you spent a whole lot of money on an awsome set up by why would you use that 48" coralife ? I started my 55 gallon with that same light brand new and only kept it 4 monthes. I switched to the same light but the one with 2 halides. I would never put my light on a 210, it's way too small. It's awsome though, your posibilities are almost endless. Keep posting pics of progress.

The reason that i am using that light is that is what i had laying around.It was on my 55 gallon till i went to t5 lights.So to save money i put that on my 210.It is going to be a aggressive fowlr so light is only for viewing pleasure.And once i get my canopy built you wont even see the light.

UPDATE! Well i got all my fish and rock from my 55 transferred over to the new tank.Everything went ok, only lost one fish, my clown trigger.I think he had a stroke or heart attack.Also added some starfish, a new piece of rock, a pencil urchin and a neon dottyback that i got from a fellow reefer.Here are some pics.
