    Live Rock Question

    People recommend 1 - 1.5lbs of live rock per gallon of water in the tank.

    If I have a sump do I include the water in the sump in the above equation as well or just the MT.

    I have a 55 gal MT tank with approx. 65-70lbs of live rock, my sump is also 55 gal but only has 40-45 gals in it.

    I only have 180+ pounds in my 210g and maybe 20 pounds in my 150g sump and maybe 5 pounds in my return pump sump so Im going to say go with whatever suits you.
