I've always wanted to do a bare bottom system so I thought to myself,"What am I going to stock this tank with"? I have a few small zoanthid gardens which are easy and forgiving to water quality as I will be doing water changes and not dosing or putting additives in this tank right away. Since the back ground , silicone , and stand are black and I like to collect zoanthid frags so my choice was black egg crate supplied to me by Madcityreefer.

Now comes the fun part of stocking the tank. To avoid a harsh cycle I did a water change in my 200 gallon reef system and used the waste water for the initial set up. I had a couple of clown fish I bought a month ago from Kris at Alpha Aquaculture and also an Orange back fairy wrasse that was getting its a*$ kicked by my Super male Velvet wrasse in my sps tank. So all in one day I had my my tank going.

Just to give some perspective to the cabinet shelving space this is how it looks.
