The tank is probably 30mins away from being full and then Ill get to turn my return on and see how will it works. Any tips to making a return more quiet? I have a quietone 3000 but ill be honest this thing is far from quiet as of right now. maybe it will be better once it breaks in a bit?
This rock scape is in no way the final product I just placed the rocks in there for now to get the cycle going beings I have more rocks from my 25g Nano that will be going in this tank. I probably wont have this much rock when all is said and done. I am a big fan of negative space so It will have to be incorporated in my tank some how.
Rocks are Bulk Reef Supply Reef Saver rocks. every rock they sent me is almost the exact same size even though I requested varying sizes of rock but whatever i plan on just using a hammer and chisel when I get to rock scape.
Build a small stand for the skimmer my water level was just a bit to high. I put this elbow on it that isn't a real sharp angle so that the water doesnt make a trickling noise it seems to work I dont know if it will effect the skimmers functionality. Its a Reef Octopus NWB 150. Should the pipes of the drains go to the bottom of the water or be closer to the top? my though was if they are at the bottom they will keep the water flowing up.
