I'll let ya know, FishEggs.
Keith, I haven't seen it sift sand just yet, but I've mainly seen it out after the lights have been off and its still kinda sleepy looking. Hopefully it will come out more often after it gets used to the tank.
And yes, TC, that is my skimmer output. It was making huge bubbles and making the water evaporate faster, so I put the sponge over it. Still making some big bubbles, but not as bad.
Once the skimmer gets broken in, I will take it off, since its an eye sore.
Thanks Andrew! I can't wait to go shopping, either.
