On a good note the mag 18 is pumping great flow into the reactors so that is a huge plus.... I want to see how well the media will tumble in it but don't want to waste any..... lol

Just ordered Dr. Tims one and only to help cycle the tank..... so i am hoping to get the cycle started when the rock and sand gets here on Wednesday..... Still going to do a 4 week setting before any fish or live stock is put in the tank..... As I want to let the bacteria colonize on the rock and biopellets..... I got the dr. Tims with the free ammonia so i can get the ammonia in the tank to kick start this off right.... so i figure 4 weeks will get is as stable as can be....

Anyone here using the maxspect razor R420R?
I was looking at the 160 watt one but want to know if they are a good light.... have been reading a lot of reviews on them and they seem to be a solid light

Ok.... not good news now.... just got home from work at around 3:15 am to come in and check for leaks on the tank.... it's been running for about 12 hrs. And what do I find..... yep you guessed it a leak..... but not a leak in the plumbing oh no..... A leak at the seam on the bottom.... I have seal tanks before so now I have to drain it out cut out the old silicone remove the bottom trim and redo the bottom glass of the tank..... not going to be fun.... so now it delays progress for around another week or so.... not in the best of moods now....

You sure do have a fun task ahead. I don't like resealing tanks that's for sure, good luck to you and atleast you found it now instead of it being full of stock!

Yeah I hear you there. It is easy to do just takes too much time scraping and drying
