You would have to sand the old glue out of the inside of the fitting.

Yes I did use PVC cement.

I will finish this build this weekend. I've been really sick with a bad cold since before Christmas. Just didn't feel like doing anything. I am hoping to get water in this tank this weekend. At least thats the plan. I will start mixing my water and salt tomorrow and figuring out my rock scape.

Thanks Paul. I do feel a little better. I am going to add a union on each pipe just in case I get a clog and have to clean the pipe out. So i am waiting for the 1 inch unions to come in so when I get those in place I can hopefully get this tank filled.

I need to work in my rock scape. Not sure how I am going to do the rock scape. I don't want the rocks sitting on the sand so I have to figure out a way to do that.

I did get a few frags from Andrew but they all keep dying. I have one that is still alive and that's out of five frags that I received. I don't know why they keep dying.

Glad you're doing better! I'm not sure why the frags are dying on you, that stinks! I've never got a coral from him that didn't do good. Maybe shipping had something to do with it, dunno. Rock scale is a tedious job, good luck on coming up with something you are happy with. Definitely want to put some base pieces of rock in before the sand for stability.

Thanks, the frags looked ok the first couple of days and I was out out of the office sick and when I came back in they had perished. I've had other frags shipped to me and they did well. The only thing I can think of is the corals were extremely cold when I received them. The heat packs Andrew is using aren't lasting long enough. I haven't told Andrew about this last batch that he sent me. I need to send him a message.

I think its also a problem with me not being here to monitor them. That's why I can't wait to move my tanks home. When I get my 40 gallon up and cycled I will start moving corals a little at a time.

Yea, I didn't consider outside temp. I've personally never ordered any fish or coral unless I had the LFS or Andrew order it for me. I would let him know about the situation though. I hope you didn't loose too much money on the order!


I wouldn't order anything now, not until it warms up some anyways. Just my opinion.

Andrew did replace the first batch that also parished. They were shipped 2 day and also arrive extremely cold. I'm going to let him know today. I dontbolan on ordering anything else until weather is warmer.

I received the PVC unions yesterday so I just have to attach those and get my rock work done and in the tank. I will probably do another water leak test before filling the tank with the salt water. I am hoping I have time to get that done this weekend.
