Well, sump is now glued and sitting in the garage until the silicone is all set and done. In a few days I will add some water to it and see how it'll do LOL

Never really done a DIY anything so it was interesting to do, but oh boy whatta pain in the butt LOL the silicone was messy and I think I killed some brain cells with the fumes

Sooooo hope it'll work out =O.O=

It's not like I used those for anything good anyways ROFL
Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I'm working the next tree nights and will be going to Alabama for the weekend. Guess that should be plenty for the tank to "dry"

Working TREE nights??? Guess that is evidence of the killing of the brain cells huh? ROTF.

ok, I ordered the base rock just a few minutes ago from Reef Cleaners
Ordered 100lb
The aquascaping I decided on is gonna look like 2 mountains coming down from the sides, meeting somewhat in the middle in a valley. Of course it's gonna be somewhat to the side to make it more interesting...
I'm so excited, cant wait to rinse the stones and soak em for a while
How long should I soak them for?

Also, I'm wondering how long should the tank be cycled for when I want to add macroalgae to my fuge? The Chaeto comes with pods and I do not want them to die due to cycling

Wrote a specific Macroalgae to ReefCleaners conerning my selections of algae, lets see what they have to say

I wouldn't break the big flat one up yet.If you are doing reef it will be great for placing corals and giving overhang area for like sun polps.

Nit doing it until maybe last second, but when putting the stones together there was no use for that stone at all except maybe for a base
