I know this tank can/will be amazing the reason it was given to me is I was the only person he knew that would spend the time/money to fix it. This isn't my first big tank but it is my first saltwater I used to have a 150gal cichlid tank it was a work of art but the seams went to leaking and at that time I didn't know they could be fixed I have no pics and that's why I'm taking a ton of pics of this tank thank you all

Make sure your floor can handle it. Too much flex inthe floor will break the seals loose

If the fish arent acting weird, jist wait till tomorrow. It looks like youre not cycled yet. If thats the case, youll just need to watch the parameters everyday like a hawk and do pwcs as needed

Ok fish aren't acting funny and I'll test morning and night I think I might get my empty 50gal tank filled up with RO water so I'm ready would a 50 be big enough for a good water change or should I use a 75 or both (yes I have 6 tanks and only 2 running I wish I had a bigger house)

Id stick with the 50 for pwcs ( thats about 20%) and youll do a big pwc at the end of the cycle. Nothing wrong with have several extra tanks. That will give you spare tanks in the unfortunate case that something were to happen to the 250 (i didnt have any when my 125 went and it was the middle of the night 0_o. Also when you top of your tank from evaporation lose, use ro FRESH water, not saltwater
