Just finished it up a minute ago. I had all sorts of loose connections and slow leaks. We are running it for awhile now to make sure it holds. We drilled the hole in the return nozzle so we should be good. I havent turned on the skimmer yet or filled the refugium just making sure it's all stable.

i did put the lights on earlier.

I think it looks good

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks lefty

SOooo, now that it's all up and running when can I add my livestock? I was hoping to start maybe tomorrow. Still have to move the pod tank into the refugium as well. But other than that I think I'm set. Water tests at 0 across the board.

I would add some ammonia just to make sure your cycled. Toss a shrimp in and see if you get an ammonia spike, or if the system can handle it.

I would hope it can handle it, theres over 100lbs of LR in there. LOL

I really dont' wanna drop a shrimp and wait and I can't dose unless I wanna kill the cuc that hitched a ride on the rock. last time i dosed ammonia I killed off all the coralline that I had and I have alot now so don't wanna kill it.

I'll test again, maybe I'll get a spike from the rock, although it wasn't out of water more than a minute

I don't think you should get a spike from the rock if it was out of the water for a short period of time... I have taken mine out for 20 minutes at a times to chip away rock (to make my arch more profound) and everything was okay when I returned it
