I didn't use nearly the rock I had curing. I guess I thought I was stocking a 150 lol... I'm in the process of fine tuning the return. I got the gurgling to stop but I have a trickle coming out of the secondary
almost forgot. shout out to @BluewaterLa for all the help and talking me through some things and lending me a few things to get this started. couldn't have done without his help! one awesome "old" reefer I have to say!
I appreciate the shout out and appreciation my friend, You have done all the work and put forth the time invested into this build.
My answers, text, explaining things and offering up what ever I can to make things easier is all a part of why I am involved with LaRC.
I am glad to have helped you out in any way that I did, Now its a matter of time till you are getting all that new gear and clean tank dirty !
Looks pristine and great, then a bit ugly (naturally), then it will start to become a full on ecosystem back to being great !
Added some under cabinet lighting this evening for when I need to do some work in the sump area . Also got a small cabinet to put my doser and other equipment into. Just need to add some skins on the sides. It will do for now till I'm able to make something to my liking.
Coming along pretty good @BluewaterLa softies & LPS growing pretty good. Some of the sps is growing and has some nice color, others are growing but not much in color. Wondering if it's too much light or what not. The few pieces with not much color are directly under the radion. The others with nice color are of too the side or lower in the tank!
Looks great! You have done some very skilled work with that plumbing. The cabinet looks very clean. That favia you got from me is looking super fat and happy! I am sorry to say I somehow missed viewing this wonderful thread for quite some time. Now I am following along more closely.
Corals look happy Pretty sure I have that Favia on the left, maybe ,, mine is a lot smaller though, maybe the size of a quarter ,, it was cheap, I think I paid $16 for it ,, its one of my favorite pieces in the tank though its a silverish grey with bright green polyps ,,
