    u would need 1-1.5 lb of rock for every gallon
    ur tank is 220 gallons so i would say a 220lbs of rock hence about a 100kg

    No real updates at the moment.
    tanks is filled up all equipment connected.
    added some sand and liverock but haven’t started scaping
    I’m just leaving the tank to cycle it’s getting to the algae stage.
    first inmate will probably go in July or August, want to take my time with this one
