Use a 1:10 solution of bleach and water and soak it for at least 30 minutes. Rinse well and allow to dry for at least 24 hours. Any residual bleach will evaporate in the 24 hours.

Update time! I got my Marine Depot order in today. Also, my fixture was ordered this morning. Hopefully it will make it in by next Friday.

Went by my lfs tonight and picked up some "live" sand.

Will be ordering about 15lbs of base rock from reefrocks this weekend. (anybody ever order from them?)

Also going to try to order a refractometer this weekend.

Oops, sorry folks. I hate it when you click a thread using the iPad app and it takes you to like page 3 of 5.

Its update time.

Long day today. My dad came over and helped me construct a stand. Good cheap labor. He worked all day for a few beers and lunch.

Pics of the construction:
