Ya its solid as a rock no pun intended. I have puddy on most of the rocks just because I had it laying around but even before then it was really solid.

I supprised myself with this aquascape because it was my first try and it came out great I couldn't be happier. On all my other tanks it took me atlease 3 or 4 tries to get it right.

Not sure how I missed this build...looks solid! Can you tell more about your sump? The DSB looks solid, but what are the 3 plastic jugs with it? I want to assume ATO, but 3 seems pretty overkill? Either way, the whole thing looks so clean, I wish mine was like that!

well i built the sump out of 1/4" glass. i had to custom build it becaues of the odd shape of my stand. the sump holds just under 20 gallons.

and as for the three jugs. thats my 2 part dosing liquids cal, alk and mag. if you look closely to the pictures you will see my dosing pump right behind my reef-angel controller. i probably wont need to dose for a while but when i built my last stand for my other tank i didnt have room for my dosing pump so i havent been using it. since im gonna turning the other tank in to my aggressive/ non-reef safe fish with very little corals in it so i dont need to dose.my bi-weekly pwc keeps all my parameters in check...

Close enough IMO. It won't cause any harm, but the struggle to bring it up might.

well i would well like to get it up. i understand when i add just fish its not a big deal but when i put all my corals in i would like to have in the 8.2 range. how can i get it up? theres no fish or inverts in the tan so im not worried about the oh swing.

you think 7.7-7.8 are good for corals
