Well I have all my reef saver rock arriving tomorrow. Poor ups guy! Also ordered my red sea coral pro salt and 80 #s of Fiji pink sand. I am seriously hoping to get the tank cycling before Christmas.... Oh and sump is all siliconed and currently drying.

So as I sit here at work I am constantly thinking of my tank... I now worrying myself about the sump I built. The first and second baffles are the same height... Is this OK or did I screw up!?

The second should be shorter as it forces the water to flow through the tank but sure it will work fine if you can't shorten it

Mine are between 1/3-1/2 down. I had the same problem as well. Its also nice because it relieves some of the pressure against the baffle as well

Thank you for the advice! On another note I was watching Mr. Saltwater TV and saw a video on algea and learned to use a phosphate reactor to combat it. Is this something I should put on my tank right away or wait?

I personally wouldn't. Get your tank up and running, let it stabilize for 6-8 months then see where you are at. If excessive phosphates are an issue at that point, sure add it. But you may just find that it's not needed
