Hey guys I had a old thread on here I was using but from now on im going to use this one for my build as I was more than anything just asking questions in that thread..
I got a 55 gallon acrylic that really should only be used as a sump due to scratches but I went ahead and added all my rock from marco's rock, and bout 25 lbs of live rock I got from a friend all I am doing with the 55 gallon right now is basically doing my water cycle and trying to seed my base rock, and clean all the cloudiness from my sand... I didnt think to get a pick before I put my sand in the 55 gallon so you chould see my reef structure I had going on..
but im supposed to be picking up a 90 gallon reef ready tank from someone local in a week or 2 and at that time I will be transferring everything over including the water...
but here is a pic of what I got going on after I added the sand last night
I didnt realize I had to wash the sand before hand... so i got some super cloudiness going on...
I know its only day one but I went ahead and measured my ph its at 8.1 and my nitrate are 0.2
I hooked up my ev180 and mag7 pump today and skimming it and running a bio wheel filter just to try to get rid of the debriet still floatin in the water..
if i wasnt such a cheapo I would just do a water change and call it a day but im just going to let it cure on its own... im not in a hurryor anything so I should be ok
