Sucky, sucky day. But, fish are all in QT now.

Tried getting the rock work back the way it was but not exact plus I can’t believe the sand has so much crap in it already.

Me: I feel like I’ve been swimming in the ocean cuz I’ve been pits deep in saltwater.

My Son: I feel like I have been carrying a large stone boulder through a narrow glass hallway with China in it. Stressssfull... lol

And of course I was doing some work this morning and noticed not 1 but 2, yes TWO lines of salt creep down the back of my tank from the where the bulkheads go through the back wall of the tank. Sheesh. Not sure how in the heck I am going to get to those now.

Steve, ime that small leak you may have in the bulkheads will def seal with salt and could be a very minor issue. I understand your thoughts and obv don’t want your tank leaking, but keep an eye on it and see what happens

yeah hoping it will but both of these started after the system was up and running for couple of months now. Not sure how long its been going on though. I think if I can slide the hood forward I might be able to get to them. Thankfully both are the end holes and not the middle two.

I will probably up the MP60's some more. Maybe the MP40's now that there is some bacteria in the sand. Initially sand got blown around too much if I went above these settings.

RS = right side
LS = left side
RR = right rear
LR = left rear

So far no new moisture detected or salt creep seen.

I have the MP60’s and 40’s ramping up more now.
