Looking good so far. And have patience w the salt water. I'd just get the supplies you need give it a few days and test the levels, do a pwc and at that point start getting your cuc

How many power heads do you have? I have my temp consistently around 76. When u do top offs make sure u are using ro/di water and are not adding salt to the mix. When water evaporates it still leaves the salt in the tak

I have one little one then just the pump that's built in. I was thinking put the built in pump on the right back having it face more up to cause surface agitation then the other one on the left blowing downish towards the rocks. Is that ok? If you get what i mean ha

So plan for the day is get test kit, live rock and set it up (probably gonna take forever), and refractometer then just make sure everything is how I want it.

Im not too familiar with the layout of the jbj lay out. With my biocube the internal pump outflow is upper back left. I put the powerhead on the right just below water lever pointing towards my live rock

Outflow is top right. So I'm thinking outflow is pointing up kinda pointed at the middle. Then other one on the left top pointing towards rocks. Sound good?
