i had that rock cycling in a bin in my garage for about 2weeks with adding different bacteria in a bottle and going to give it another week or so before I move. I am going to be moving over rocks from the old system but I have been battling Dinos over there and they are knocked down to the point you dont seem them except a very few spots here and there if you look for it. So i am a bit scared to move rocks from there just yet. Hopefully I can take them out enough it wont bloom in the new system

made the move today

I am happy with it and being a larger size tank. The stand can hold all my doser, Reservoirs, ATO and my ATO container. So its nice that you dont see anything really sitting outside the tank

its so the tank doesnt have the mirror finish of bare bottom glass and gives the bottom glass some protection from the rocks. Plus it also has very good grip when you put the rocks on it. They dont want to slide anywhere like they would on straight glass.

So changed up the lighting. Took the radions and the pendants down. Now I gotta sell them off

but I am running 2 noopsyche k7 pro II  lights. they are 90w each lights. Very happy with how they look and the amount of light they give. Getting around 500 par right above the surface with a 75% blues and 14% white/red/green

 

here is where I got these lights

Lovely tank, I really enjoy the aquascape and bare bottom!

 

I have an Aqueon 29 gallon thank that I’m staring. I have an Eshopps Eclipse S as well. However, when I water tested my plumbing I notice that my waterline falls about a half inch or so below the top boarder. How did you manage to keep your water level at/above that border?

 

I know mine needs some adjustment, the water just pours into the overflow box and straight down the main drain pipe and it’s very noisy. I’m just not sure what would be the best way to correct this.

 

Thanks for sharing!

You need a gate valve on the drain to close it off enough. the way I run mine is it’s closed off enough just to the top of the emergency overflow and just a very light trickle runs down it. It’s very quiet that way.

Tank looks terrific. 

 

I keep telling myself that if I ever get bored with my Fusion 20, I'm going with a 40 Breeder.
