Well here are some initial photos's and impression. The rock is amazing. Lots of life, that should stay alive, and amazing variety of sponges, soft and hard corals.

True live Pukani from TBS Saltwater from the ocean to my home in one day. Total time in transit less than four hours and time from dropoff into my tank less than six hours.

I will post more pictures tomorrow.

Tank just 30 minutes after adding rock and sand (still a little agitated, but looking pretty good)

Looks great how many pounds of rock did you get for the tank as I am ordering for my new tank this week

The rock looks really good. Just a side note I've read multiple times that sponges will die if exposed to air. I hope that isn't true because that red sponge looks awesome!!

Here are some more pictures from the day after adding the rock and sand. I added between 25-30 lbs of rock and 30lbs of sand along with some other assorted goodies.
