    Gryphons 90G

    Quite a few members have told me over the past few months to get this post up, but I've held off until it was set up. Well today rock and sand are in the tank, and water is flowing from my RO/DI. I'll get pictures up in the next couple days, right now it just looks like a mess because the sand was just moist enough to clump.

    We would be very excited to see the picture of a wet clump.
    It wold be a nice change from the cloudy water shots we have all seen.
    You cant possibly know how you want to run your reef-system, until you have ran one.

    It is coming along slowly, my RO/DI is only a 50GPD and only running when I'm awake in the evening.

    Awesome that'll help speed things up. I'm considering trying to find a way to hook up one of my cheapo maxi-jet power heads to the intake line of my filter, see if I can't super charge it lol

    Minor delay, my cheapo RO/DI stopped producing water. I'm going to try to fix it today but if not I have a new one already ordered from BRS.

    My new 75 GPD 4 stage RO/DI showed up today...and the feed fixture to the first filter was in pieces inside the bubble wrap. I'm calling BRS in the morning to get it replaced but this is yet another wrench in the gear works. The rate I am going I might get this tank flowing this year XD

    Well I just got off the phone with BRS, they're going to send me new fixtures. The one on the Dow Filter was also broken on the same side. Sadly it'll be thursday before the replacements arive.
