Well, today was a long day, and I didn't get as much done as I wanted (I had a small accident with my thumb, which stopped some of the work).
I got 55lbs of BR scrubbed and washed. I also got the sand washed and in the tank. The sump has its baffles in and silicone applied, and my skimmer is put together.
I also transfered the SW
Mix to the tank, as I was planning on getting more RO
today before the stores closed. As I was building the closed loop system, to make sure I had everything I needed before I went into town, I
I ended up cutting (scraping?) off the tip of my thumb while doing some PVC
plumbing. I wasn't even cutting pipe, but was just pushing together a threaded x slip coupling when my hand slipped and ended up causing some pain. I decided that this was enough for me today since it took a while to stop the bleeding and saltwater wasn't helping the issue:P
Tomorrow, the other 30lbs of BR and my RO
filter should be here. My thumb should also be healed enough that it wont bother me to stick it in sand/water, etc.
And here is a pic after the tank was moved onto the stand this morning.
