I got my sand yesterday but I haven't taken a pic of the bag yet (not that exciting...). I thought my Drs F&S order would be here today, but it didn't show, so it will come tomorrow! I'll take pics of all the goodies I get. I ordered my base rock tonight. 50lbs of Key Largo base rock from marcorocks.com. I probably won't use it all...I'll have to see. I'm going to order some live rock this week too. Gotta decide the best time so that I can start cycling the tank when it gets here. I'll put sand in then as well.

I didn't get my RO/DI hooked up today but I got the parts to do so. I'll probably do that Thurs. evening or tomorrow evening if I get off early (not something I want to do after working 12 hours!). I'll take pics! Doesn't seem that hard to do, but I'm still nervous about it. I'm going to run it inline with my cold water supply under the bathroom sink.

The sand itself may not be exciting but a pic of it is... Can't wait to see the new things tomorrow!

I have the exact same refractometer, it tells you to use distilled water to calibrate it, when I tested it to calibrate with distilled water, the calibration was [perfect right out of the box]. jfyi

The rock was shipped today...I just ordered it last night (base rock).

The equipment didn't come today! My salt did though. Drs F&S sent 2 shipments, but I thought the equipment would come today. Its scheduled for Friday though.

I didn't get any pics of the sand or salt bucket. I'll get pics of it and then the equipment on Friday.

Live rock will be ordered soon!

I honestly cant really tell you. Its one of those things that has its own taste lol. It also leaves a weird taste in your mouth after you've drank it.

imo RO/DI water + RO/DI ice is the best glass of water you could ever have. my parents have well water out in the country that is ran through a high dollar ro/di and a sweet ice maker than makes little 1/2"x1/2"x1/4" ice cubes.

I'd rather drink that water than anythings I think.
