Thanks for that advice, that is the hose that came with the sump. Would you recommend that I get 1 inch vinyl hose to attach to the sump?

Minimum rock amount is based on livestock not tank size.

Looking Good! How's that patience working out? Any fingernails left?

Haha, I second the GO BIRDS!!! Patience is ok, today is my last day of the weekend so I have to go to work tomorrow. Water production is going to be going slow again, but my Koralia 4 powerheads are due in tomorrow via UPS so I can at least swirl the water.

See that! You're already almost up to the swirly water point. Then you get to watch the sand storm and wonder how long does this mess take to settle. Before long you'll be saying 'look honey how clear and big this is, it looks h u g e'. Then of course the rock will show up and you'll wonder why am I emptying so much water out of this thing after I just filled it (rock water displacement). It only get better from there.

The drain line looks much better. Getting rid of that excess will do wonders for the drain!

I got POWERHEADS!!! Now at least I can get some water circulation and not worry about it going stagnant until I can fill the tank up!!
