    This is what I get for leaving it in the box

    Don't mind me, just posting an update...

    Yeah, that's a nice big crack in the upper corner. Should have taken it out to check for leaks. Doctors Foster and Smith are sending me a replacement immediately, though. They rock.

    They said it would be 4-7 days. Close enough. I'll just be about 2 weeks behind everyone else. Setting it up the day it comes in, though :)

    I'll just leave this here.

    Please tell me it's okay that I took the picture with the sand already in the tank. Look, I even took a close-up! Date! No water!

    My tank with the rock I picked up this morning. I had a very narrow window to go find rock today so I'm glad I found something attractive that fit.

    Tank with water.

    And cleared up plus light.

    I am too! And I'm glad that the date was extended to add livestock to the tank, too. I was worried at first when I found the crack in mine.

    Is yours wet yet?

    Thanks! I love it and rwynn seems to have taken a liking to it, too.


    So I was able to test my water today. It's been 5 days since I've had it set up and the results follow. After I tested I performed a 25% water change which I intend to repeat on Monday and then leave Mondays as my regular water change day (unless I get an ammonia spike and have to change more frequently, of course). So, just a boring, chemistry update.

    pH: 8.2-8.3
    NH3: 0.25 ppm
    NO2: 0 ppm
    NO3: 40 ppm
    Salinity: 1.024

    :-P

    I figured most of the people here would by chemistry geeks. My brand of sarcasm never comes across well online.

    I has algae!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I came into work today and found quite a bit of algae growing on the rock and sand! Needless to say that the tank now has an orange hue about it when the light is off. A quick check of the stats yielded the following:

    pH: 8.4
    NH3: 0 ppm
    NO2: 0 ppm
    NO3: 0 ppm
    SG: 1.023
    Sal: 31 ppt

    Will be going to the LFS next week to pick up a turbo and (maybe) a hermit crab as part of my CUC. Hooray! Critters!
