No matter how hard you try, some things can not be changed.
I think it's safe to say your experiment failed before it even started.

Umm... you quoted yourself out of context... I haven't even established the tanks biological part of the system yet...

I would say it took me longer to get started... not that it failed...

Hang on to your vision! And thank you for the video on making your own rock!!!!!!

I have to agree... the homemade rock just isn't done doing what it does. There is ALOT of rock in there.

I think it needs a longer bath in the ocean for a few months.

Keep on trucking, just remember you will have lives in your hands.

If it weren't for experimenting we wouldn't know how good a skimmer is for our tanks or that some lighting is better than others or how a reef tank will suck all the money from your pockets and leave you wanting more.

So the tank is almost empty again... did it a day early... water was at 8.0 will fill it again and wait another week.

So what's the $ up to so far?

How about man hours?

Not a clue... don't really care... I know I need to buy some stuff that I don't have but I'm waiting on it cause I don't have the money.

Can you ballpark it? I'm asking because I know most people who have a tank wish they could have 1 even bigger (and possibly build it, such as myself) so I'm curious where you're at. If it's an offensive question then don't worry about it.

Greenmaster 01-20-2011 07:24 PM

The tank was $4,500.00 and the rest you can price out yourself... It's not that I'm offended it's just I didn't keep track and don't feel like doing the research to add it all up... Maybe another $3,500 I'm not sure.... The ballpark, not an arm and a leg... just my right knee (what I got paid for it by the insurance company)
