My first salt water aquarium. Things are moving quite slowly (because I can’t just assemble things the way the manufacturer intended). So far I have modified the stand by adding an additional support inside the cabinet, similar to the RSR 350. I just finished replacing the button with a nail feet with adjustable feet. (an interesting game is to place a ball on the floor against a wall and then guess at where it will end up). I just finished drilling what I believe to be the last hole in the aquarium overflow box. I had drilled four holes already. Two on the front panel near the upper corners. I will be installing A pair of Hydor Flo rotating nozzles (unless the return water pressure keeps popping them out). Alternatively two of those flow randomizers that have no moving parts. I am a fan of symmetry, and not a fan of the restrictive OEM elbow preceding their non centralized nozzle. The remaining three holes are at the bottom of the overflow box, one in the middle of the front panel and one near the front corner of each of the side panels. These holes are to supply return water to ..... I’m going to hear about this one ..... the reverse flow Under Gravel Filter. My theory being that with sufficient flow the fish poop will magically float to the surface and be drawn into the overflow box, never to be seen again, until it’s time to change my socks. Is anybody still reading this? I guess I should add a few pictures before everyone falls asleep.
