Well, I thought I would take some more pics and post more of how the build is coming along. Currently the cycle is moving along, although I think I mostly ended up with cured rock and even with the 3 raw shrimp I only got a mild spike of ammonia. I'll keep testing for another week and see where it goes.
I've purchased two clownfish and they are in a QT for another three weeks. They are eating well, and show no signs of any illness. Still not sure how often to feed them. I've read everything from twice daily to once every two days. Hmmmm...
Also just finished a gravity fed top off system. I bought a float valve and with a collapsable camping water container, some tubing and a reducer I feed the return section of the sump. Level has been steady for two days now.
Also picked up a RO
4 stage from Aqua FX. Nice unit. I'm glad I got the larger capacity per day as I was looking at a 35gpd model. I ended up with a 100gpd and filling containers doesn't take too long.
I've also discovered some new creatures in the DT. Are these good or bad? Is that "feather duster" like creature aiptasia? Do I need to get rid of it? And since the lights have been off during the cycle I didn't notice the web cover critter. What is it?
Anyway, here are the pics...
