Good looking tank so far, hopefully i catch up today when my LR gets here...not sure about the scape, I got an idea with just the dry rock, but we'll see whenver the LR shows up.

 

How many lbs of sand did you put in? Also, did you superglue/epoxy your rock together?

I did 10 lbs of sand. They sell them in bags already i cant remember the name. And its funny with scapes because every time i do a scape outside the tank then try and duplicate it in the tank it never comes out the same! Lol

Looks like my exact order minus the purigen and add another order of filter floss.

 

Does the media basket cover the overflow hole? The splashing noise is annoying and filling it so it doesnt means any filter media would mostly be bypassed.

No theres no need to. All the water is directed into the basket and flows pretty good

Hmm i guess that makes sense.. It would only be the initial water when you first put it in that wouldnt have run through the media, but it would after that.

 

Is there any non toxic marker that i could use to make a fill line with since the one on the side doesnt matter?

pffft!

 

new tanks are always exciting! no matter what! do you have any plans as to what direction you want to go in with stocking?

 

i really like the scape, especially how you have the larger rock set up on that smaller branch. that cave is way neat.

what about a grease pen. like the ones you use for plumbing. its just wax. doubt it would be harmful.

i read those bits while i was checking out your thread, i meant more of a general theme, biotope, collection local or coral type you were considering.

 

could just be me tho, im one of those obsessive planners. i had my scape, and most of my stocking planned before water ever even touched my tank.
