Looks like someone didn't rinse their sand!

I didn't think that was a good idea with "live" sand! But yeah, the whole salty side us very new to me.

It is clear now (thankfully)!

Live rock added (and a terribly blurry iPhone picture).

Ordered some chaetomorpha, caulerpa prolifera, gracilaria, and C. Sertulariodes. should be here on Saturday for brackish planting fun.

Macro algae arrived today! In amazing shape, thank heavens. You definitely get a ton of each species. I will post pictures once I have it all sorted out. Right now it looks like a salad bar.
