Great! It will be a few days 'cause the store closed at 3, and they are closed on Mondays... so I will go Tuesday evening and take a look at their rock again.
I got the ATO sytem with dual float switches installed, tested, and working.
My bulb on my fuge light went out. I think I am just going to throw one of those circular clamp on work lights in there with a CFL daylight bulb.
The plumbing is much quieter with the PVC
and 90's than it was with the tubing and almost a straight shot into the sump.
How often should I have to empty my skimmer cup? Yesterday, it didn't produce anything. Today, the foam is goin crazy, and it looks like I would have to empty it every 24 hours. I already have it set on max, so I will have to throw something underneath it to elevate it a bit if it is not supposed to produce that quickly.
EDIT: Also, anyone have any comments on my filter sock arrangement, as I described above? The water seems to be passing through it just fine - it is not even elevated above the water level inside the sock. But - the top of the sock is about 1" above the rim of the aquarium.
