hahaha stella was the one that was confused about the false overflow (though initially it took me a few doubles-takes to figure out too).

 

leak test is all good- as you can see, almost ready to turn everything on!

this will also be my first ever sump and first ever skimmer.

excitement is an understatement!!!

 

i saw your post in your thread about the tailspin blenny. i keep seeing one at my LFS... so tempting!

 

anyway. can't think about fish right now. first, need to transfer.


also i've decided to syphon my old sand into the sump/fuge. that way i can still save my little baby snail buddies but i can still have nice fresh live sand in the display

Tailspots are great fish- very entertaining and comical?

Also, just a thought but be careful of the snail babies getting in your pump.

Yup! Just poured some salt into the massive brute I have sitting by the tank :lol:

 

You get the skimmer set up ok? If not, here's the youtube link I forgot to send.

 

 

Hi, check out this thread for a SCA skimmer mod to reduce micro bubbles. I did it on mine and it was super easy and works well.

Daisy was unforgettable :). Nope...no video of mine. It was when I was doing a water change. I had left to clean the filter box. I had put the screen top on before I left so I guess she felt it was safe to jump up there LOL. She got a salt bath and then a bath in the sink :).

Update:

screen top is now made (mounted the radion temporarily so i'd know how to cut the screen edging around it.) had to go get 4 more elbow joints, but- it was a success. sits snugly. was tempted to make the transfer over from the small non-photosynthetic tank, but i have a paper due on saturday, so i called it a night after hauling the huge boxes out of my house anyway.

 

just think- in ten short week's ill have my masters and all this paper nonsense will have been (sort of... i hope) worth it.

Morgan FTW!!!! Suck on that Stella!

 

You can use a razor on flat surfaces ($8 for a 100 pack in the paint dept) and peel off any that are on the rock.

 

Congrats on the Masters!

Go to the paint department of Walmart. It's like 2.99 for 8 or something. Yellow holding container.

Just be careful... Xenia slimes a lot when messed with. I dunno how much you have, but you may want to only razor a little at a time, run extra carbon, and maybe even do a couple daily water changes till the xenia calms down.
