So, one more day til payday and until I "think" I can order the stand. I'm actually leaning on the side of the cheaper one without the tank trim.
Both are supposed to be 30" tall and look pretty similar so I think I;m gonna do the money saving thing and get the one locally with free delivery.
Now all I need to do is rinse off the last of my base rock and paint the back glass. Should I paint it after I get the stand or try and suffer through the paint job while it's on the ground? LOL Seems like it will be a pain to paint well while it's on the ground. I use latex paint and do it by hand with a paint brush. I haven't even taped off the back yet because the tanks' still boxed up. I am slipping on this build hehehe
Is there anything else I need for this setup guys? I think I have everything but some additional plumbing parts which will probably be determined once I start putting stuff together.
OOps, I have one more question!
I just read that a 1 inch drilled hole will push only 600 gph
through from gravity, while I have a mag 9.5 return pump that will do 950. the head loss will be minimal since it's drilled so I for sure figure on a ball valve. But will that much turnover be good enough for 90 gallons?
I only wonder because my 125g has about 1200 gph
going through it at a time and it's not that much bigger than the 90g.
Also, have my updated fish stocking list almost done.
Will post that sometime later when I finalize it. Still tossing around the idea of having mostly wrasses in it. And the harelquin tusk is still a maybe, I'm not fully convinced it will be ok in just a 4 foot 90g tank PLUS they are really expensive! LOL The australian ones are not gonna happen at $179 each so is it still worth it if I don't get the aussie one? They are much more brightly colored than the indian ocean / indonesian ones....
