Just started to put sand in. I still have another 3 bags to go. I was thinking a 3 or so inch sand bed. I don't want to get a build up of gasses. Here is a pic with only a bag and a half.


Here is a pic of my current fresh that is above the new salt tank in the wall.

I found a guy parting out his tank. He wants $2.50 a pound. He has like 300 pounds. Sound like a good deal? Here is a pic of his tank.

What was funny at the lfs I was talking to the guy about LEDs and I asked him if he had dimmable and he said why would you want dimmable I was like so I can acclimate my corals and turn down the light. He was like. You can just move the coral up or down to acclimate it. Old school , he didn't sell those kind of LEDs either.

I have started the flow from the tank to the sump. Now my question is how much flow should be coming out of my loc line returns. Here is a video. The return is 3/4 flex hose. Runs about 5' and goes up around 18".

How much flow should be coming out of the return loc line? I just added salt today and I feel like I am able to open the return a little more. Prob because the water is heavier.

(((Has anybody ever felt like this.))) I can leave the return pump wide open. I can also leave the drains wide open. I have a pump shut off if my water level goes too low. And if I have a power outage my water will not overflow the sump. I'm just way too nervous to leave everything up and running right now. It's a scary feeling lol. Maybe this weekend I'll leave it running because I'll be home. Since I just set it up I don't feel safe leaving it up and running while I'm out of work for 10 hours.
