Well went and picked up my aquarium today and am exhausted. It had a lot of coraline on the glass so scraped that all off. Very lucky not a scratch to be seen. I also cleaned out the sump. Tomarrow hubby will do the lighting. I am totally lost at how to hook up the skimmer and sump to the tank. I had planned to put the mr1 in the sump but is to tall so will have to sit next to tank. I emailed mrc and asked if they had any installation instructions they could send. I know I need more plumbing for sure. So for now the macro algae and rock is in a rubbermaid with air and light. There is also an auto top off and haven't a clue about that either.
