December 18th, 2019. Just finished working three 12 hour shifts and off today. Time to set up the return. I open the box and start reading the directions. I hit a roadblock. I have two options. Purchase this attachment or hard plumb the return. That is easy I am off today and setting up this return so to the hardware store I go. And got it plumbed

December 19th, 2019. Ok need some sand and want a bottle of bacteria. Found both. While at the LFS 5min from the house I started talking to the owner and was telling him that I had spent months trying to find some good live Fiji or Pukani from a trusted source but could not find any. He then leads me to a holding tank and way in the back out of sight he starts pulling out large well established Pukani rock. My eyes glowed like a kid in a candy store! I bought all 55 pounds of it without thinking twice! It does have sponges so monitoring any interaction with coral skeleton. But what about the other rock? Well change of plans. I did add a few small pieces to add some more diversity
