    Jumping back in

    Hi all, back into the hobby after a 4 year hiatus & I'm thrilled to have stumbled onto this site this morning, see some familiar names. Currently finishing up my very large stand for my 50g rimless starfire tank to house my 40g sump/refugium & top off system & whatever else I need to store. Have 60lbs of dry rock in garage waiting to start my cycle and was thinking to go with a DSB but due to tank only being 16 high, might go with one inch and build an algae scrubber for nutrient export (still need to buy a skimmer, any recommendations would be appreciated).

    Im in the Bartlett area and if there are any local reefers who could donate or sell me some live sand to help me seed it once Im up and going (in a week or so) I would be very appreciative.
    My previous tanks were all SPS dominated and they did very well, but my job took me out of town far too often and my anxiety levels were off the chart, so I took a break. Haha, biggest downside was when my wife tossed all my equipment, thinking it was garbage but on the bright-side, have been able to upgrade virtually everything and the new LED systems are killer!
