Aquarium Update: Life!

Recently, I purchased some live rock to continue the Aquarium project. This is the recommended progression of a new salt water aquarium. Live Sand > Live Rock > then... a Shrimp and Goby pair. The live rock contained some soft coral polyps, and some established brain corals. It also seemed to contain a sponge, and some plant life. I purchased about $250 worth of live rock, and plan on purchasing more in the near future.

Aquarium Update: Water!

With the arrival of some live sand I had ordered, the pressure was on for me to get water into my tank this weekend. I purchased some "Crystal Reef Sand". 200 lbs of it to be exact.

Aquarium Project: Plumbing!

I was finally able to put together the plumbing system for my Aquarium this past weekend. While, it isn't perfect, it should handle the task. Ideally, I would of liked to have a better connection to the barb connections on the bottom of the tank. They were supposed to be 1 inch, and 3/4 inch ID barbs. However, 1 inch and 3/4 inch reinforced vinyl tubing wouldn't fit over them well, unless I headed the tubing up. I suspect it was actually 1 1/4 inch, and 1 inch barbed fittings, in reality. ~shrugs~
