I dunno what all to say so I'll tell you everything.
First my grammar is horrible on the internet so please excuse me.
I started lurking here about a month ago and registered a few weeks ago.
This is my first Saltwater setup, I had a pair of Oscars that where almost 6 years that died a few years back do to a cracked tank and have decided to go a different route this time around.
I picked up a Biocube 14 and matching stand off of Craigslist in southern Jersey a few months back and have been piecing the setup together slowly ever since then. I bought a modified hood that was pretty beat up but had the nano tuners 3.24 upgrade working in it, I paid 65.00 for it and got home and swapped everything over to my hood so it looks stock and bought a new 50/50 for it.
I followed THIS guide and upgraded the 2 fans with THESE and moved the 2 stock fans to the outside of the shield.
I upgraded the stock pump with a maxijet 900, had to shave some off the intake nipple to get it to slide down in the chamber.
I made a decent order from inTank for some chemipure, purigen, JBJ nano Glo, Media rack, and a digital thermo.
I bought a used refract off Craigslist for 15,00 and had it calibrated at a LFS in Philly.
I set it up with the filtration, pumps, and 20 lbs of Fiji Pink Live-sand 2 weeks ago to insure everything worked and ordered the nano pack of live rock from gulfliverock.com on the 16th.
The rock was delayed but I got it this afternoon when I got home and now have it all set up.
I have a few pieces of rock left and the scape isn't anything super great.
The rocks are jsut stacked should I glue/poxy them in place?
Here are some pics of everything feel free to give me any advice you feel would be necessary. I only have a iPhone to take pics with so they are not the best.
I'm not sure what to do with the extra rock, should I let it dry out?
Do you think I could get more in the tank?
Here is a pic of what I have left
I tried to keep about 1"-1.5" in between the rock and the glass/back wall, can the rock be stacked against the back wall with out problems?
I'm also not to sure on where or how to position the Oceanic circulation pump that came with the tank, I also have a unused oceanic UV sterilizer but I didn't know if it was needed or not.
