Got my return plumbing redone, I am soo very proud of myself.
May go back to Lowes and get some 1 inch connectors and stuff and do the intake side over too. I managed to get ONE rock into the tank today. LOL I've got maybe 80-90lbs so far and it looks kinda full already. Was hoping to go "up" with the rockscape this time and have some height to the structure. I have also been dreading doing the sand rinsing. I know I have to do it, just have no gusto to go do it. lol That is gonna be the hardest part, the sand....and it's gonna delay my fish ordering this week.
