Maybe I should tell u guys what's going on first. I got a great deal in some lr and I put it in a can for 2 weeks with a pump skimmer and air stone proceeded to inspect pieces and put them in dt and sump. The sump rock is fine but 2 of the pieces in the dt are getting a little cyanoie. I've been battling it for the past month or so and it was on the retreat but now it's coming in on those 2 rocks.

I'm going to be switching over next week and don't want to bring anything like that to the new tank. What should I do?

You're probably over your alotted size. Just open up a new tab and go to TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

After you upload you'll be given a code for use in forums.

Can't wait to see the progress!

If the conditions are right, cyano will grow in the new tank too. It doesn't have to be introduced.

Tank has passed leak test #2 and all the in tank plumbing has been glued and painted.

The overflow on the left side will have 2 return outlets-a spray bar across the back and a 3/4 flex nozzle this will be on a mag 9.5 with ball vale throttle.

Overflow on the right will have a single outlet that returns uv filtered water from the sump via a aqueon 4000 pump with a ball valve as well.

The only thing left to do is grout the tile top and put the last coat of paint on the canopy. And install light/fans.

Oh and of course set up the tank!

So you will be starting a separate thread for the in-tank stuff?
Delete some pictures or something because I'm excited to see the tank build progress lol.
