Ordered the odyssea t5ho deluxe 4 bulb unit today. Hopefully it gets me by for a year or two. I'm sure I'll have to get new bulbs for it, but trying not to right away. I know it's a get what you pay for scenario so I fully understand what I am getting.

Ive been testing my ammonia levels but I'm wondering why my ammonia test is cloudy. I used the same bottle tonight on my freshwater tank and it's clear.

Is it API test kit? If so it's normal when you test saltwater ammo.

Got Enkamat from Glass-holes.com in the mail today. It really helped to quiet down the overflow. I think it did a wonderful job. I'll proabably end up getting spa flex when I can afford it. It's on the bottom of the list for now, but should almost eliminate any water sounds.

also have my Koralia 3 in there now, I just got the replacement washers for the impeller today. So it's in there along with the K4.

Live rock comes tomorrow. Along with uniseals and a marineland pump for my salt mixing station.

Light should be here Friday.

Tank is on it's way to cycling. Light should be here today.

Working on my water storage lastnight. I just need some clear tube for the pump output so I can close the loop on the salt barrel and circulate it.

Yes those tables held just fine with the barrels full of water for a week.

Got my Odyssea light. Overall for the price I think it is a steal. Until I want to get into corals it should suffice.
