Not sure what is going on the forums, but it is twice when I post a topic and it seems nothing gets published.

Here I go again.

Migrating my JBJ 45 to a 120G plus sump (so probably like 140G) tank, so far so good, dealt with a mini cycle, some plumbing issues, making the saltwater having my stock on bags and buckets, lost a cleaner shrimp :(. It was a crazy weekend but finally done. Thanks also to the LFS (exotic aquatics on helping on the initial setup, some water and sand and plumbing)

BTW my old tank is now available on the dry goods and the goodies.

There were some plumbing issues, but well one of this days will clean it up, too late to make that many changes 🙂

Updated PIC, after a month, had some Cyano I think I brought from my 45g, did the Chemiclean treatment, there is a lot of work on that treatment, protein skimmer going nuts and well worried that something would happen to the stock, but I guess if you follow instructions should be fine.

Thanks, with this COVID-19 thing, I been working on moving my RODI system to the Garage, run RODI tubing plus CAT5 from the garage tot he Office about 30 ft run, Had to do it from the outside, and use PVC as a conduit to run the tubes and cables, Also working on a saltwater stations and using a DOS for auto water changes, since I added CaRX do not need to do 2 part dosing. Work in progress, but weekends and weekdays have been long, had to put my mind into something, besides taking care of the fam, and some work ( I said some, since my customers are in the same boat as anyone so there is not much to do for now)
