The tank is filled but I had to mix some more saltwater to fill the sump up. I used some of the saltwater to do a PWC on my 10 gallon reef so I had to add more water and salt. I tested the salinity last night and it was to high so i had to make some more rodi water to add to it. I added another 5 gallons of rodi water to the mix last night and it should be ok when I get home today. I was planning on filling the sump up tonight and start running the pump.

Sounds good. Are you using a hydrometer or refractometer to measure the salinity?

I received a shipment yesterday of some really nice ZOA's and a couple of shrooms. Here is a list of what I bought.

Eye of God Paly
Limeade Paly
Blue eyed monster ZOA
Lunar eclipse ZOA
Sunny girl ZOA
Cotton candy shroom
Red dimple shroom
Red gorgonian

I will try to get some pics of them when everything is open and happy.

I'm picking up a red hornet today from my new favorite store. The owner is a zoa collector and he has some really nice ZOA's. He's fragging the red hornet for me today. I'm getting 4 polyps from him. Cant wait to go and pick them up.

Good! Hydrometers can be very inaccurate.
