:confused: a ten gallon reef tank is going to be a real bear to take care of...almost daily water changes, and a lot of filtration...but, you would need at least a pound to a pound and a half per gallon...so between 10 and fifteen pounds of live rock, and enough sand to give you about 3/4 of an inch on the bottom...say, 20 lbs.
