I think it was you who said you wanna follow all the 40b build threads. Anyways I don't know if you've seen ziggy953 has one. You haven't posted on it yet. It's "ziggy's nano build (again)"

i found it, subscribed, and caught up.
so far what im learning the most of, is how much of an novice i am at this...

i am following mr_X's advice and just sitting back and "enjoy"ing my tank. the phosban 150 has been running for a day now? today when i came home from work, my tank didnt have the buildup of scum like im used to seeing. so that was refreshing. im not saying the reactor is solely responsible, but i dont think its hurting my situation.

Awesome! You know, I haven't used a test kit since my tank cycled.

I'm in the process of doing a big water change. I started yesterday. I've been doing it really slow. I'm using a aqualifter pump for the fresh water and letting it drain thru my skimmer. As soon as I get my nitrates at a respectable level, I cant seem to get them below 15, I plan on just sitting back and enjoying as well.

Not much in the tank as of yet, but eventually, I'll be doing 40 or 50 gallons a week.
