Tank is now "wet" and salt is currently mixing at home. I've only used the included hydrometer to get it approximatly correct, but will be getting the refractometer out after work to make sure it's ready for live rock.
Oh, and I also need to upgrade my heater I think. Any recommendations for 100w? I don't need anything too fancy as I will be connecting it up to a temp controller that will run the fan and be a backup for the temp sensor on the heater.
Excellent progress Not sure about the heater though, I've been through a fair few different brands, unsurprisingly all failures have been down to user error on my part! Tip - never drop a dirty water pump on a glass heater, they really don't stand up to it
I knew there was a good reason I'm delaying setting up another marine tank - Psymon you've reminded me: it's the huge mount of ????s needed. I think I'll have to be satisfied with watching yours on here for the time being
I only went and spent a small fortune on live rock on Sunday...
And I've already seen my first hitch hiker - a tiny starfish! I think it's Asterina and was happily exploring the glass last night. Once I'm happy with the rockwork, I'll pop some pics of my rockery up
