    Tag me when you do post the build, please. I would like to see the build. I really like rimless tanks and tank 2 will be rimless 90 cube or bigger.

    Yes you are correct. I was running low Alk then I bumped the alk up by supplementing KH buffer with a water change and now it is high. I have been steady for some time now and I really think it is due to the weather and Co2 levels. I will test my Alk again today just to make sure that my testing was not off.:oops:

    Well no testing this week, and normal maintenance is on hold. I have a case of cellutis and it is nothing to mess with. I am hoping to home Sunday. :)

    Been watching the tank on the cam and everyone looks happy so far.
