Oh and I think the wait will be a little longer lol, can't put my finger on the problem like I thought.

Cause see I realized my Brute was green the other night LOL. So I dumped that water and made a 10 gallon which I know is FG approved. Still pH problem somewhere, so that isn't the problem like I thought and really was hoping for. I'm hoping he can get the Hanna done right so I rely on it. I wish this GFO would work a little faster lol.

Watch your temps. The tank looks fine to me. A blank canvas ready for critters. Glad you got to the bottom of the PH issues. As an engineer and high time pilot, I have learned that devices and instruments are only as good as their last calibration. If it looks odd, it needs to be verified before taking action on it. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. Am watching temps.

Does anyone know how I can find out what my actual flow movement in the tank is?? Any flow meters out there that can just measure the flow in a container without being hooked to pipes or hoses?

Does the elegance coral normally look like a closed up clam when the lights are out?

Looks good buffy, all I see are possibilities when I look at your rock. Sooo many places for corals to sit! LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks, I got one rock I keep messing with, it's on the right. I want it level but it's heavy and the other rocks don't fit well enough to balance it so it's leaning forward.

Got home today and my heaters were sitting outside the door. Woohoo, delivery must have came just after I left for work.

Have all 3 in tank now. Got about 10 minutes left then I can plug them in and go to bed.

After I sort through bills this week, I'm thinking about placing a live aquaria order. I got to figure that out by thursday during the day so I can call them and have them ready for pick up on Saturday.

I have the 20 gallon tank, the silicone and the plexiglass ready for me to cut. Hope to do that this weekend. Got to do research cause I've not a clue how to build a sump.

I have a 10 gallon I will be using for qt if I get fish. Don't know what I would get first though cause there's sooooooooo much to choose from.
