Fry Daddy! Multiple tanks, reef, seahorse
I may go pick up the tee tomorrow, but like you say, I think it should work
I did this! It wasn't perfect but it did work. It would get you by until you happen to be at the store for something else.Dang, I forgot the tee for the secondary drain. I'm not going back today. I thinking I could put a air fitting in as elbow for the secondary, what you think?
My 10G and work 3G both have man made rock. It's branch rock that was supposed to be mined, but once you break it open you can tell that there is very little of the white mined part in there, and lots of a darker concrete like material.Well, nothing new today, maybe bringing the tank, stand and sump in. Will finish the stand indoors in the ac, hook up plumbing and everything between the sump and tank.
I'm waiting on some one inch bulkheads. Also need to decide on what type of rock, live or dry. I leaning away from man made rock like Walt Smith reef rock. I think Marco rock would be better then man made rock if I went dry.
Who here has used man made rock?
I think getting the 75lbs of premium rock was a great choice. You will be much happier than the man made rock in the long run I think. I'm curious to see what you get!I just put a bunch of rock that's been outside since 2016, put it in a Rubbermaid and soaking with bleach. Then I will rinse it tomorrow and place back in with more bleach and to again Friday, this will be my base rock.
I also talk to Dan again at gulf coast live rock, he said he can ship me an order next week. Trying to decide on amount. It's the over night shipping that kills the price. Can do the 1-3 days shipping and save. Just not sure the amount of life I will lose.
I just did 75 lbs of the premium rock. Overnight shipping.Between my base rock and live I souls have plenty
I would still be using Reef Crystals if it didn't mix up to an Alk of like 12. IO is great for an FO tank, and the reason it's the biggest seller is that it's consistent, and all the public aquariums that have huge tanks for fish, penguins, and wales use it. It's a perfect choice for getting the tank going and cycling, then you can transition to something else when you get your perams dialed in and have a bunch of coral.Instant ocean is a great salt, I used for years.all the way back in early 70's. I just like fritz . Who knows at this price I may just use IQ . IQ is probably the biggest selling salt.
