Everybody's first sump setup has a few hiccups. Good thing is... it isn't your first tank. You have all the right tests, got some additives, a bit of experience. Now it's just the wet test. Can't wait!

You got that right! If everything goes as planned tonight, the tank will be filled and sand might be put back in depending on when I add the salt

How long should I let the salt mix?

If you can shut the valves you should be able to drain and dry the the baffle. The silicon and reinforce it. I've never done that but it should work.

And for your scape I found detailed chiseling the best way to get y stone to fit using a number two flathead and my hammer to do it

yeah i thought of doing that, only problem is, im not gonna be able to get all the water out of the sump, and i cant take the sump out from underneath the stand bc it is pretty snug in there.

do u kno if that will cause any problem leaking into the fuge like that?
