I know when i was looking at designing my sump i probably saw 100 different designs with several or more pages each.
Same here! And I read for months and months. After a while information not only gets conflicting, some is outright wrong. Worst part was the DSB were at the end all I could do is just doing it and figuring it out for myself

Yep same here. And when it came down to it was easy and simple. Conflicting information is another reason I'm trying to be specific.

Lol yea I noticed a little smudge of of coralline on one of my non-coralline rocks and it made me all happy too. Though I have a feeling that soon enough we'll be overrun with the stuff.

It's funny how we get so excited about these little things when we're first starting off. Two weeks ago when I saw that I actually had a hitchhiking hermit I was thrilled lol
