    I just have to connect the plumbing and then fill it up with water which should only take a millennium w/my RO/DI unit. Then move all my frags from my mantis tank to this one a few weeks later.

    I should probably not this went in my office which is great and had a gal make a nice ruffled "skirt" to go around the glass if I don't have time to get to it or while it is cycling.

    It's 100 per day but the water pressure here doesn't support it or I have something set wrong. (maybe too restrictive)

    about 60psi

    Edit: I could have the reject set why too high or my perseption of how much it is making... I have noticed a huge difference on the water temp vs/flow. I just shoot for luke warm since someone said either hot or cold water is bad... not sure which.

    odd I have a 75gpd with 48psi and mine makes it about how it should. I'd check and see if something is blocked or something, but I don't really have much experience in ro/di units.

    I love the rock work too but wait till I get my other pics. It's hard to tell but there is alot of front to back play with arches and such.

    I did drill almost all the rock and used acrylic rods since they are clear and the same size as my bit. I didn't do anything too nuts though as I don't want them to support the weight of the rock just hold it.

    Ok a few pics

    here are a few pics of the tank... I just did the plumbing tonight after work and will do the electrical probably tomorrow since it should only take about 30-40min. I'll have to get a pic of the water input vents? I custom made them and very cheap but should be very effective.

    Another guy made the stand and I made the hood (you can kinda tell but matches ok). Then re-stained it all.

    HECK NO! I just haven't put the sand in yet. Since it's in the office I put the rock in right away so it wasn't an eye sore and I've been having to lug the sob out away from the wall to do the plumbing and everything after work each night.

    Edit: I also opted to do a dual overflow with the one having the restricter on it. Then I'll be running 4 T5's for all my softies and a few minor SPS/LPS.
