A little update.
Disappointingly I haven't accomplished anything with my tank this week as I've been super busy at work. But I have today off and **** is getting done! According to FedEx my lights will be delivered sometime this afternoon so I'm pretty stoked about that.
I'm going to rinse out the tank, install the background, fill it, add salt, an throw in a power head for mixing. Then I'm off to the LFS
to get some dry rock. I've also got to wash my sand and put that in after the salt mixes for a while. And then tonight I will hang my lights.
After all our talks about RO
water I started looking on a local reef forum and found that the majority of people in my area successfully use tap water. Apparently toronto has really decent water. So despite the fact that its not the recommended way, for the time being I will be using tap water treated with prime and running some chemi-pure elite in my filter. Pictures to come. For the last week I've just been staring at this.
