All in a week's work

Since my last post, I've managed to make some pretty decent progress...

Added a new LED strip (
Added new sump it's up and running nicely (Thanks, Scott!)
Took a couple of water samples to LFS (Nebraska Aquarium Supply) for testing; basics look OK so started stocking the tank
Added a new, 9lb chunk of live rock
Added three frags (gonna "transplant" what's in the 29g next weekend; and I need to do a better job of learning, identifying, and recognizing)
Added my first swimmer, a Christmas Wrasse

Blew the Christmas budget...lol

I love that rockwork. Very organized and sand bed space for whatever.

Thanks!

Not planning anything significant in the right half; just one more piece of LR to finish hiding the overflow...

Gonna need ideas for stocking the tank with Hawai'ian/South Pacific fish. The guys & gals at Nebraska Aquarium Supply are a fantastic source of info and livestock of all types...

Nothing exciting here. Changed out a noisy Marineland hob on my 75 for a different one. Not sure what happened, but it went from dead silent to roaring thunder in a few short days. Interrupting my beauty sleep that I need so desperately.

Also had a fiasco yesterday during water change. Drained 60% using a maxijet 1200 as always, and realized when I drained and broke down all my other tanks at my parents old house last weekend, that I left my sink adapter there and no one picked it up. Gone forever! I own no buckets significantly sized to fill that way either. After some desperation, I found out my siphon hose fit absolutely perfect inside the faucet with the aerator taken off. Worked great!

The 5.5 died completely. I didn't realize it until I was removing fish and snails for the 40. Nothing but nasty sulfur in my face.

Soaked the sand and gravel in vinegar, lightly rinsed and then boiled the heck out of it for a couple of hours. Vinegar gets more caustic when boiled btw, something to think about. Rinsed it for half an hour solid (my poor back!) and put it back in the tank which had been wiped down with vinegar, then rinsed. Neither smell nor cloudiness when I sift the sand. Going to leave it with filter, bubbles, heater and substrate. Also boiled DW and set it on a shelf to dry out. No idea what to do. Maybe a breeding trio of class N Endlers? Some moss balls?

Dang lucky not to have lost anything more than a few trumpet snails (RIP-I love you guys &#128144.

Poked the dirt in the 40 for air pockets. Couple small streams, couple of bubbles.
