    Just got off live chat with Marine Depot. Tank Delivery is being held up due to the road conditions. Delivery is now set for tomorrow. I will have to rely on my wife to inspect the delivery. She is very thorough.........Poor delivery guy!

    You may not want to do that, It will collect a lot of detritus. You will have nutrient issues if you don’t keep them blown out.

    Thanks srad750c. I’m concerned about that too. I’m not going to permanently attach it. The one thing I have going for me is that the back side is wide open. I will blow it out with a blaster every so often and see what comes out.

    Thanks for your input!

    Still no tank. It looks like it’s sitting in North Carolina. I know the bad weather had a lot to to with the hold up but it sure would be nice to have it here and ready to assemble. I will call the freight company tomorrow and see what the plan is.

    Just called the freight company. Tank just got unloaded in Charlotte. Trucker should call later today or early tomorrow to schedule delivery. Ugh. Weather has added days if not a week to delivery.

    I got the same pump, have not set up. What is aqualink? I bought a computer battery back up, hope it works out just as good! I also been debating on the seneye. Do you think it's worth the monthly cost? Im also setting up a tank! My tank wont be here for about 1 more week

    The aqualink is needed for the icecap battery backup. It also allow you to use an app to control the pump via WiFi and do cool stuff with it.

    Check out reefbreeders.com. They sell the pumps and aqualink and have a better description.
