    Just got the tank setup on the stand yesterday. Took six of us to lift it. That thing is heavy, ha. Will finish setting it up next weekend.

    Good afternoon folks
    readings
    Ca379
    Mg 1450
    Alk 10.4 Ph climbed up a bit so I am going to let it dissipate over the next couple of weeks
    PH 7.77 the warm weather is back and the wind is out of the south east blowing the exhaust from the turnpike back in my direction. Last week when the wind was from the north the PH was up around 8.0+ steady so I definitely know it is the construction with all the trees torn out to replace the trees with a wall. They should have left it aloneo_O
    P04 .06 time to change the GFO forgot to do that last week:rolleyes:
    Nitrates 8 ppm and happy.

    Yeah, the tank weighs around 550 pounds. I've been taking lots of pics. Was going to start one as soon as I have a little more setup. Basically just a tank on a stand for now, ha. I'm moving everything over from the 155 gallon bowfront to this one.
