I'm quite good at DIY, and I will have help from a professional.
Marine depot has the dimensions of some of their box overflows so, I'll try to replicate on of those. The materials costs is insignificant compared to the cost of buying one, so if it fails I'll replace it and lose nothing but some of my free time.
I guess what is the sweetest thing in a reef is overcoming the problems you face down the road.
Well, since this topic is already opened can I ask some more questions regarding LFS?
I only found 1 LFS that actually runs reef tanks.
He has live rock for sale.
13 Euros for 1 kilogram uncured
17 Euros for 1 kilogram cured
In USD and lb its:
20 USD for 2.2lb uncured = 10 USD for 1 lb
27 USD for 2.2 cured = 13.5 USD for 1 lb
Is that a good price?
From what I know, he will first check what comes on the live rock and if it has anything good(coral, etc) he will keep it for himself. So I don't expect anything special from the live rock from this guy.
If I go with uncured rock, how long does it take to cure the rock and cycle the tank?
With cured rock will it make a big difference, making worth the extra money for cured?
