Thanks. I went with the more brown rocks as they seemed to match the background fairly well. However I am adding 6 more cool and neutral white LEDs so as dark and yellow as it may look in the picture the tank will be incredibly bright overall. I do like the Ikolas though, not sure what variety I'm going with just yet.

I'm using the Aragonite Seaflor Special Grade Reef sand I think its called. Thats almost 3 bags (120lbs) in the tank. Should pack down more when water gets in it. And I agree about sand, had it in my last tank loved the look starting out but it ALWAYS gets algae no matter what you do and it drives me nuts. Tried to avoid silica all together this way.
