Got the first of the goodies today. Got a sump, 2 overflow kits for the tank, protein skimmer, light for the sump, 2 circulators (HK 4), splurged and got full test kit, and a bucket of salt.
I'll have to mod the sump. The skimmer doesn't fit in the end slot and the highest barrier levels are below the lowest setting on the skimmer level adjust. I'll have to shave 2 acrylic walls off and move them about 1 inch.
Tank, Coralife Aqualight Pro 48", stand, 1800 gph
magdrive pump, aragonite are supposed to arrive tomorrow. Since I have to mod the sump, I'm holding off on live rock for the tank and sump.
Heater, refractometer should arrive this week.
90 lb. base rock ordered from Marco, but they shipped DHL, so who knows when it will arrive. I'll buy live rock from LFS
Sump will have one big live rock, a bunch of reef rubble where the bio balls are now, and a bed of aragonite. I'd like to know what else I should be spiking it with. Isn't there a microbio somethingorother that I put in? Also, any reason I couldn't keep feeder hermit crabs in the sump, maybe starfish, maybe clams, maybe shrimp, starfish, and corals and such?
