Well I can swing for a 6bulb if I have to. Thank god for 36". But if I buy a 4bulb getting the extra two latter is harder on me. 11" of water. Four should still be plenty even passing through glass. Got up this morning. 2 cups of evap in 6 hours. I can live with that vs gallons.
Im caught up on mr_X's build. Alot of good ideas. Like not using my return pump for as much flow and the possibilities of having a room to house all the equipment. I like DIY. It's something to be proud of. But my DIY has never looked as clean as off the shelf. The room could hide that.
I built my stand for this tank and sump. May not look it but it did have some thought put into it. Probably the best thing I did where the feet. Even full of water I can re-level the whole set up with just a 3/4 wrench. It is an exposed sump so im glad the plumbing looks clean and I didn't spluge silicone everywhere. It's been running for a week and some change now. If I get mangroves should I be concerned with toxic gas releasing into my water from the 5" dsb
in the sump when I "plant" them?
I've already mentioned the sc150, bubble magus cone clone, skimmer is broken in and working like a champ.
Two fish 4 snails and 3? hermit crabs. I need to stock this thing.
