BEHOLD!!!! LOOK WHAT I HAVE CREATED!!! haha
I will add the rock from my tank in the coming weeks. I will be checking the parameters as I go. The protein skimmer is busted, so right now I don't have one. I will look into it this week, I just didn't feel like messing with it tonight.
The new light system is a Deep Blue SolarmaxHE double T5 System. Has moonlights too, looks nice. I know it won't support corals now, I may upgrade later, but for my FOWLR
it is fine.
I am happy to report that the Maroon Clownfish LIVED!!! He was turned in to the LFS
for 16 bucks which went towards the new lights. I told the LFS
his name had to be Rocky to have lived in that tank.
The tank has been circulating for two hours and the water is clearing up really well. It is really starting to look nice, I will change my rocks around tomorrow, I just kind of threw them in there tonight. I still think despite the issues it was a steal for 300 bucks. I do have a question, my pump is running very well, but it sound like it is vibrating sitting in the sump. When I pick it up off the bottom it is silent, is there anything I can use to dampen this noise? Perhaps some rubber spaces of some sort...
Thanks for everyone's advice, I am happy to see this ended well for everyone. I got a tank at a steal, even if it needed some work, I managed to save the clownfish and best of all that woman is torturing anymore livestock!
