Yeah buddy!! That to do list can be a Done list faster than you know!So another small update.
did a thing today (I’ll ad pics later). I now own a 54g tank and another stand for a 40b (same footprint). I also got a small power head and a small ac pump. Power head for mixing saltwater. Pump for water changes.
this way if, for some reason, the sump
@F i s h y is grabbing for me from @fishguy242 doesnt fit in my stand, I have a 40b for a sump and the 53g for a spacious qt tank. Or Vice versa. And eventually I’ll let the kiddo use one of the tanks for her goldfish.
(or I’ll have myself another tank for a predator tank or maybe a macro tank...ya’ll are a bad influence hahaha)
Edit: for now I plan on setting up the 53g and bringing over the hob filter and all of my biomedia (and qt decorations) from the 40b. This should provide enough bacteria for the tank to be “cycled” right away. Then it’ll be moving the clowns and my little foxface over to the new tank. After that I’ll drain the 40b and move it and it’s stand to the new house.
Once my 120 is set up and cycled I’ll decide what I want to do with the 53g
as of now, all that remains missing for my dt is:
-getting my RoDI up and running.
-acquiring plumbing pieces. And plumbing the tank
-acquiring a brute for water mixing
-getting some gfci wall adaptors
-getting my aquascape sorted
-moving the rest of my stuff over the the new house (both returns, skimmer, lights, sand, and my other gyre)
-oh and getting my testing kit situation sorted. Figure I can do that a little more slowly as I’m planning on letting my tank cycle at least a month.
-at some point getting some maricultured rock and adding it to the system
Probably seems like a lot, but to me, after the past two years, this is the final stretch. I’m so close I can smell the saltwater lol
Yeah buddy!! That to do list can be a Done list faster than you know!
Looks like I have a hanna alk tester, hanna phosphate, and hanna copper tester if you are interested.
Also have some salifert test kits and a red sea master kit. Welcome to any that you want.
