    Sorry it's taking so long. But this is a pay check to pay check build. First comes paying the bills then tank equipment depending on whats left-lol. My Jeep repairs set me back quite a bit However the wait will definitely be worth it and the added times makes for better decisions

    Going slower is a good thing.
    It gives you time to think things out and you make less mistakes.

    Ordered a new skimmer today! SCA301 Newest model comes with a silencer & cup drain. I'm excited Makes me feel a lil better after losing my Clam yesterday Keep looking in my tank and it seems so empty....

    Decided I'm not going to be using sand in my sump. I'm going to use Marine Pure Bio-Filter Media. 8x8x4" block. Will be so much easier to keep the fuge area clean of detritus.

    Nice.
    I'll be interested to see how that bio block works out. I thought about one, then kind of decided more 'traditional' would be safer.. (yes, I chickened out.. LOL)

    That's great.
    I'm glad you didn't do like I did and forget to glue a joint.

    So, how is the noise level from the overflow, sump, or pump?

    Marty-I had no joints to glue. 4x uses for plumbers tape. If I'd had a project like yours I'd have forgotten more then 1 joint-lol.
    Well this Mag 5 is kind of loud but it has quieted a bit, but not much. I'll give it 3-4 days. Wish I could have afforded something a little less noisy. I really hope this pump would be quiet Dang things 10' from my bed
    Not a peep out of the over flow! Sump is very quiet also

    Oh and my skimmer came today!!

    All sorts of good things today.


    Before you put it in the final place and fill it with saltwater, make sure the skimmer will go in and setup where you want it.
    IMO, it's part of the test before saltwater.

    I would also suggest that you find a small container ( big enough to fit the skimmer in plus a couple gallons of room)
    Then go buy enough white vinegar to make it bubble all the way to the top.
    Turn the pump on and let it run atleast overnight.

    Fast way to break in the skimmer. Removes manufacturing oils and whatever.

    Already made sure, the skimmer fits perfectly with room to spare.
    Will clean it as you suggest. Was my plan anyways-already got the vinegar.
