More than a few days but less than a week churning over dirty water, which is coming from the brute holding the live rock. I forgot how exciting poopy foam can be! But honestly way more excited about the noise of this DC pump. Much like the COR-15 return, we were in quasi-hiatus/moving when the DC pumps came onto the market en mass, we're very pleased with the noise from this latest generation of equipment.

Obviously more patina needed on the skimmer for best performance, but so far great start.

Missed Thanksgiving for pick-up and water fill, but that’s ok, it’s sooner rather than later and is turning out BEAUTIFUL.

Good two days. Water is in the display. Plumbing is in and DRY and most of the wires tidy. Where’s the under-stand pic? “Most” is the important word in that sentence, “most of the wires are tidy.”

We’ll work towards an installed and prettied sump glamour shot and more water so we can run it through the system and not just making sure the display is leak-proof (not worried, so far so good).

We’re obviously dialed to 11 on the excitement meter.

Just sitting around the table, close to midnight, crushing dusty rocks into powder inside these reagent Nitrite and Nitrate bottles, just a regular addict-way to end my Tuesday/start my Wednesday.

But so Salifert worth it …

Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 1-2
Refractometer confirmed salinity 35
DOS units are hung & plumbed.
Rock went in morning of 12-13, aqua scape in the next day or two.
Total system water w/ rock and sand: 80g
Addict out.

you will need to move that black box on the right. it will distract you from the real quality viewing.

Almost wrapped up here. There is a BRS deluxe reactor mounted behind that center brace, fed from the return pump (tiny gate valve). Fuge sand is setup. Skimmer is doing its thing. DOS pumps mounted and container right underneath it. Two eheim heaters in the return (250w and 200w) are heating the tank no problems. Shaping up to wrap-up setup with rock, and I’ll give a video tour after that.

Happy World Cup final day. Go western hemisphere.
