Went in a bit of a different direction. LOL
Filled the tank with all the ro
water I had on hand, about 70gallons worth and the rest I used tap water for. Phosphates are testing at .25 so it's not too bad.
other than some further adjustments on the return line the system is up and running perfectly. Got the water levels just right on the first go.
I plan on maybe adding the 75lbs of live rock tomorrow and the rest will be base. I want to stay around 125lbs or so, nothing crazy, I want lots of room for lots of fish.
Put the 55g 4 bulb T5 on the tank to see how well the light penetrated and I think it looks excellent. What do you guys think? Here are some pictures.
