Ahhhh....yes, another problem I had when I was testing it out. I have read through any posts I could find about it and the tubing was mentioned in one. Someone said to replace it with new (better) air tubing and that will no longer be an issue.

 

How are the little guys doing that you have in there now? How is your water testing out? Keep us updated :)

sorry i caught a stomach virus or something like that a few days ago, so i haven't even wanted to get out of my bed to go on the computer. I will try to post some pics later if im feeling a bit better. The only problem with the stock skimmer is that the airline tubing that comes with it always falls off the air pump after an hour or so of it running, so im going to use stonger airline tubing

water params are perfect, calcium is a bit high, but my ph, and alk are perfect so im not too worried. When i get some LPS and such the calcium will go down a bit im guessing

so today is the day i add the first fish and coral(s) to the tank!

For fish i was thinking a goby (rainford's) or blenny (midas)...any other ideas?

 

and for coral im probably gonna get some of the easier stuff, probably some shrooms, ricordia, zoas, and/or maybe an lps....

 

any suggestions would be wonderful

i have only had the midas for two days, and so far he/she? is nothing but beauty. I also put a clown in there from an old tank that i had being kept for me until this tank was ready. They seem to get along fine, the midas just swims in and out of the rock work. it is so eel like, i love it.

Everything looks great, Kenny...give us a FTS!!! I love the Midas too...I was thinking about adding one to my tank :) Keep up the good work!

 

I have finally got around to adding some rock to mine as well. With the vet bills, I have had to take it soooo slow lol! It has been just salt water and live sand for three weeks :( I had a small cycle with just the sand, which I didn't really expect but have a small amount of diatoms. Yesterday I added 10 lbs of Figi and in two weeks or so I will get another 15 -20 lbs. The LFS that I like better is curing theirs as it only just came in.
