The tank is 90 gallons, I have a 20 gallon long sump/fuge and a 20 gallon long frag tank.
I put the water in the other day and all was well until the last 5 gallons... BOTH bulk heads started leaking.. so currently not running the overflow/return until I get the new ones in the mail.
There's the background.. I received my 50 lbs of dry (Florida Reef) rock today, so I went ahead and put it in the DT.. have more coming and adding more to the DT as well as in the sump & frag tank as I will not be fragging any corals any time soon. (Is 100 lbs of rock for this system OK? I plan on running Chaeto in the fuge as well as my skimmer, also have a DSB
Well I stepped down from my ladder and looked at my "masterpiece" and it is totally off center- but I'm okay with that
I only put in the large pieces, I still have to stick in the little ones here and there so it looks flush/natural. I made sure I left lots of holes for water flow and tried to keep as few as I could from touching the sand. Just looking for some tips/criticism/advice on how I placed the rock.
Also, REALLY hoping its okay to leave the water as it sits until my bulkheads get here. I have my power heads running in the DT and the skimmer in the sump for now. Will it be okay like this for the next week? Or will both tanks begin cycling and something drastic happen when I finally get the plumbing up & running?! Frag tank is empty as of now.
I'm attaching a few pics of the rock, hoping I did this right. Also, This is my first SW
This is as STURDY as I could possibly get it. Do you think this will be okay for future SPS
? I reallllyy want a good amount of SPS
, but having no experience, I'm not sure what the best layout would be.
Thanks for ANY input guys!
