I wish I'd hear back from Steve at reefrocks on an ETA for sand. I got my rocks fine, I don't really want to fill the tank without the sand in it.

I'll start fitting for my sump tonight and hopefully finish epoxying my rock structures together.
Go slow and take your time.., do it right the first time.., not much room for second chances here

Thanks, won't be anything too special. My daughter has been wanting "Nemos" for some time now.

Fitted the third bubble trap baffle this morning. Hoping to mount the sump and start plumbing tonight.

RODI was delivered today. Going to setup my mixing station this weekend.

My sump is done and plumbing is test fitted.

Got my sand today. Filled tank only with RO to leak test the bulkheads. All seems good. I'll test the rest of the plumbing and pumps tomorrow.

Tested plumbing lastnight, I have two small leaks to fix. The quiet one pump doesn't seem to quiet to me. But it is drowned out by the constant waterfall noise in the overflow. Hoping some fine tuning and slime will help with that down the road.

Purchased 5 gallon bucket of instant ocean salt today.

Ordered a maxijet 400 pump for my ro/di station, uniseals, and 10 pounds of live rock rubble from PA hoping to seed some good coralline into my tank with that. Should be here Wednesday.

Here's it full of saltwater. Still a bit cloudy. Not happy with the Glass-holes overflow at this point. I'm waiting for an email back on how loud it is. Hopefully they'll send me a piece of enkamat to help. It's not my plumbing, it's in the box itself, a cascading sound.
