Well, at one point in time I was going to add an urchin. Most just aren't reef safe. The one that I liked that was is the tuxedo urchin. The issue there is that it will steal polyps and such to wear. Yeah, I'd be upset if he ripped my blue symphodium up to wear. So no urchin.
As for today, I fixed my ro
and mounted it. Currently down to .04 tds
and slowly dropping. It was at .44 before I changed the resin.
All through this I have been rambling at my gf about resins, tds
, my tank, what I want from my tank, and so on. God love her for listening to what it took you a week to read lol. It is going to be an odd feeling that here on Wednesday the tank will be done...just from lack of property.
The only current issue is once again the skimmer. It stopped skimming this week after it freaked out and overflowed. I believe I have adjusted it back to the correct spot, but we shall see.
I have had thoughts on adding another heater to the system. This one in the tank again. It was scary when I checked the temp when the sump went down and it was at 75 degrees. If it was actually cold and snowy outside I would have been in serious trouble.
The only other discussion is with the future tank. My mother works with glass, mostly stained. So I asked her to utilize her friends about drilling through tempered glass and if its possible. My dad believes that it is as long as you have the right drill bit. So if it comes down to me needing to, I will simply get a diamond tipped bit from brs and drill a tempered tank...prob run water over it while doing it to keep things cool. Either way, prob over thinking things and should focus more on maintaining what I have currently and enjoying it. I started a discussion with another member on her tank as it went from her display and flowed into another before going into the sump. I like the idea and could use it to flow into a frag tank. If my coral are going to grow this fast ill need it.
Here is hoping that Wednesday's order arrived alive and that I'm happy with the colors. If not, I'll need to find someone to trade with lol.
