Someone is coming over tonight to pick up all the corals, live rock, sand, 'fuge, etc.
Here's my plan - please poke holes into it as necessary.
Clean out all residual sand and water in tank and sump.
Fill with tapwater and add acid to break down coraline algae.
Run for 1 or 2 weeks as necessary for algae to break down and get rid of any other grunge from the reef.
Empty and refill tank. Run for a few days and clean and empty again.
Place Flourite, rock wall at rear of tank (see picture below).
Fill tank with RO/DI.
Add fish and cycle.
My lighting will be 2x75w VHO (10,000K) and 2x39 T-5 w/ Tek reflectors. Filtration will be overflow dumping into a sump - through filter floss into 3 gallons of bioballs. Return to the tank via WavySea.
Do I need to add CO2 right away or should I wait a few weeks? Anything I'm doing out of order? Missing?

The stone wall will go along the back side of the tank to break up the overflow and return as well as form caves for fish.
