    So I ordered about 60 lbs dry rock and I was hoping to use Splash Zone (because I already have a bunch) to put it together and create an Aquascape. I should mention this is a completely new tank with no water yet. So I'll have time to let it cure and dry completely. I read on another forum that it was ok. This person said they work at SeaWorld and use the stuff there all the time to attach frags and rocks. Anyone have any experience with splash zone? Also, in this case should I begin an entirely new thread???

    One more suggestion for that fluval. Have an extra set of gaskets on hand just in case. I had some gaskets go bad about 4 months ago and had to shut my filter down for 2 days. ;NailbitingI was waiting on new ones from amazon.;Facepalm It seems places carry the filter but not the parts.

    So I've decided to install a sump and drill my tank. It seems the more I read about this, the more I feel that I'll be doing this down the road anyway and regret not doing it from the beginning. Can anyone tell me what size overflow I should go with a 60 gallon tank???

    I like that. And what about the return? I found one on amazon but they "suggest" a 3/4 inch return bulkhead. Is that typical???
