heh.. cool.

We don't have a container store around here, so I'll have to see if I can find some Lee's Specimem boxes, or something.

Thanks for all the info.

Let me see if I have this correct.

Sand goes in the bottom of the larger container, underneath the 'wet/dry' boxes, in the same 1/2 that they are in.

They should set a little bit above the sand, and the overflow should be about 7" or so high, for water to overflow into the heater/skimmer/return pump section?

The only thing left that I am confused about is the live rock rubble (Perhapse the whole wet/dry thing in general confuses me. )

There are 2 smaller containers, correct?
I guess filter media would go in the top one, and the live rock rubble in the bottom one? Then the water would flow out of the bottom one into the divided 1/2 of the whole thing?

Shouldn't they be completely above the water line? Sorry for the silly questions, just trying to get a grasp here of what exactly is going on with the 2 little boxes.


Again, Thanks.

I test ran it for a few days without a hitch, but it wasn't with livestock or anything.
