    Nick, hello how are things going with the reef these days? Things are great here. Ok lets get on with the faux bed. I did my epoxy faux bed before I set the tank in october. I used acrylic under the epoxy faux bed because I have 1/2" bracing around the bottom of my 240.. If I did it again I would use glass. If you do not have the thick bracing I would go directly to the glass bottom. For me I let the epoxy bed dry 4-5 days. Then I used a scrub brush to scrub off any lose sand. Then I vacummed it up. I then set the tank is place and plummed it all so about 4 more days went by curing the epoxy.. After that was all done I ran fresh water in the system for 3 days to clean out anything I left behind and to also check for leaks. Overall I would say about 10 days before I added saltwater. Then I ran the system 2 weeks without zeo. After adding zeo 2 weeks I started adding sps and haven't looked back.. If oyu need more detailed info I am more then happy to help.. If you have any other questions go ahead and ask.. I like to help if I can.

    Peace, jeff

        Farish, if you can go to RC and do a search for epoxy faux sandbed you will find a post about it... I can't exaclt rem the name off my head.. I will check in a few hrs though when i go home for lunch if you do not find it on RC.. It is a great thread though for info on it so I would def look for it.. I would do the search for 2-3 month back in the reef discussion forum... Try a variable of those words if it does not come righ tup.. Idea for faux sandbed also try that...

        Peace, jeff
