I can't believe your patience to go 4 months. I'm just going crazy waiting to get this tank stocked. I had a feeling there would be no true dodging the uglies. I guess it's just a matter of deciding when I want to turn the lights on and get it over with.I did a 4 month cycle with dry rock and still got the uglies. Some of it was my mistakes but I think it’s inevitable when you start with dry rock, it’s just a matter or when.
Thanks for the tip! I could really hear it last night and was thinking a filter sponge in the right place might solve it but couldn't decide what that place might be. I'll give your solution a try! Glad to hear it performs well and can truly be quiet. Can't wait to get it dialed in!Nice looking tank and build. My nuvoskim (desktop size for my 25) is a beast and is very quiet. It did make some noise at first though. I cut two small pieces of foam filter sponge and wedged one in on either side of the tiny pump that is in the skimmer at the bottom. My noise appeared to be the pump vibrating on the plastic. Now all I hear is the sound of muffled foam - but I usually don't even notice that unless I listen for it.
