Looking good!! Three inquiries though. One, why is your water level so low?? Two, you gotta figure a way to move that protein skimmer to the side or the back. And three move your magna float around the front. Sorry for being so harsh sounding. It is getting there though.

1) I've been waiting on water.

2) I can't move my protein skimmer until I build a new stand, as stated previously

3) Idk how position of a magnafloat affects anything. Lol. Pretty sure it doesn't.

I think he just meant when you're done building your stand and move your skimmer, you'd be able to use the magnafloat around the whole front glass. Looks really good though.

Ah. Gotcha. Yeah. The protein skimmer is just something my tank needed but whoever built my stand sucks at carpentry. There has been no way to move the stand out from the wall. It was a newbie mistake. Lol. Biggest tank I've had and I messed up.

And thank you. I'm proud of it but I wish I was less broke and had more free time. Lol

I didn't mean to sound short or rude, I really do appreciate criticism. It usually causes progress.

I'm crossing my fingers that I will have a new stand in the next month or so. and then I will get to move it and clean all my glass. Lol.

I was just following up on the joke about the magna float. Just teasing you. I think it is coming along good. It's just a shame about your skimmer Hopefully you get that situated soon. And are you making your own rodi water?

I figured. lol. I didn't mean to sound the way I did. My brother lives right down the road. He has an RODI system. He does water for his water changes and then mine. Lol. So I should have I any day. I thought I would today.

You should keep an extra 5 gallon jug of water so you have top off all week.

5 gallons wouldn't cut it. I've put at least 15 gallons of top off in this week. What I really need is a lid but my tank doesn't have a center brace so that one hasn't been figured out yet.

Sheesh!! 15 gallons of top of in one week? That's crazy. Something sounds wrong there. Is there a rain cloud forming in your room. Lol. I buy 10 gallons of salt water and 5 gallons of top off every week and the top off usually last me a week no problem and I usually have top of left over by the end of the week.
