Thank you! I took a little extra time making sure the wires and lines were in order and looked neat.

The tank is looking good. I decided not to do a PWC this week. I want to see how the skimmer and fuge manage nutrient/DOC export over a couple week period. About mid week I will start mixing up new SW for a change either Thursday or Friday. I'm planning on taking those two days off to dedicate to tank maintenance. I have to get a new C02 tank for the FW tank as well as setup my dosing system for ferts.

I'm having to empty the skimmer cup every day. It's not full of liquid but full of sludge and foam. I have the skimmer running pretty dry right now. If I let it go much wetter I'll end up with water overflowing in the skimmer cup. Eventually I'll be able to adjust and fine tune it. It seems to be doing a pretty good job so far.

The fuge is loaded with pods. I had the big ball of cheato in the biocube with the fish and evidently there were a lot of pods still alive in there. The fuge is full of them! That is a very good sign.

That's about all for now.

Update:

Tank is doing well though I am seeing the hints of some algae. I'm sure this is from the gunk that remained on the rock. I'm blasting the heck out of the rock and clean it as much as I can to get all that stuff loose and into the skimmer. So far so good.

I'm going to do another large PWC in the next couple of days. RODI is working overtime to make water right now.

I cleaned the skimmer and the media reactor. Fresh media and a clean skimmer may help to pull more of this crap out of the water.

I've also dialed back my lighting. I'm only running the whites at 80% and the blue at 95%.

I knew this was going to be a challenge....

Thanks Paul!

I'm hoping to run out to the LFS today and pick up a few things. I added 13 snails yesterday and will probably add a few more.
