    Yeah that was the drive for me to build this, I wanted to have a big fuge and still have a sump so I built them seperate. Then I wanted a spot for my ATO reservoir so I did have to custom build one last night out of acrylic but its getting there.

    You should do it this have a been a good time to build I think should be plenty of filtration to handle whatever I can throw at this 20L. I used a little more putty than I wanted to but did all the cuts with a circular saw. I shouldn't be to upset I haven't built anything in years.

    Water Parameters

    Checked the water ca was between 400 and 420 PPM. Maybe you can shed some light on the alk... Some people have told me that KH and ALK are not the same test and some people tell me they are. So if that is true I stay in the 8.0 to 8.2 dKH,

    More progress tonight... Got to tear apart the plumbing to paint the stand then I will glue it all in place. Also add the doors and placed a piece of acrylic inside the surface skimmer with nylon fasteners to give me a little more control of the surface skimming water level.

    Water Parameters

    I assume this is where the batch number should be lol So mixed about 3.5 gallons, was suppose to be 4 gallons but a series of unfortunate events caused it to be slightly less. Nevertheless tested the new water after mixing per the described directions and calcium was at 420 PPM. Did the water change will test in the afternoon tomorrow. Thanks again for the help!

    Water Parameters

    I will check that online also thanks for all the information! Just an API test kit my brother has the Red Sea Test kit. I plan to test the CAL the water I mix for the water change, if it is still low I will get his test kit tomorrow.

    Water Parameters

    I am going to mix some salt up tonight and check it. I did a water change last week so a few days early shouldn't be an issue. What batch level online should a I be checking? I assume they mean to that the salt is not to be stored for more than a week mixed not in the bucket as you buy it?

    Water Parameters

    Any recommendation for what salt to go to? I bought the Red Sea Coral Pro and have done two water changes but it has never gone over 380 since the water change.
