Lol her donation was the supplies. I paid the extra money she refused to pay. Every time I get a birthday card or something with money in it I just give it to her lol but it's worth it

Update

No readings yet.. I turned the skimmer off because I didn't want sand in the pump unless it needs to be. I have a heater and a bubbler in right now and when it clears up I'm going to turn the filter on. And my review on the skimmer: good but loud, really loud.

Lol It's okay.. Didn't make any more purchases and my base rock is coming in tonight or tomorrow. The water is clearing up pretty well.. I'm going to leave it alone until tomorrow so I can see when I put my rock in.

Great news!!! I think I got a coral or something!!! Definitely not apstasia. It is hard, white, and looks like a root. If it's a coral it's dead.. But I have no clue what it is. I found it when i was breaking live rock for my filter. Also, I got my skimmer skimming lol. Needed to adjust the air, it's going great now.
