Started March 2009

This is the tank I converted from fw to sw.

The sand was supposed to be no rinse required... hint-always rinse your sand


After rinsing the sand 10x the tank was still REALLY cloudy

Top-off float switch got stuck last night......

Posted 10/10/2009 at 11:48 PM by MrSandman

But i was lucky....i have an Aquacontroller 3 that kept things from getting out of control. Like most people i also like topping off my tank with kalkwasser saturated water. My AC3 will top-off with kalkwasser or freshwater based on the tanks pH. If pH goes over 8.15, 2 solenoids activate. 1 solenoid activates to shut off the kalkwasser supply, and the other solenoid activates to open a bypass which allows freshwater to top-off the tank instead. Once pH drops back down below 8.15, it reverses...

Cleaned skimmer and sump today

Posted 10/09/2009 at 07:36 PM by MrSandman

Soaked the skimmer today in some muriatic acid and water (mixed at a 10:1 ratio) for a couple hours while the pump was running. First time i did it since i setup the tank. Amazing how much crud collects in only 18 months time. While the skimmer was out i also vacuumed the sump.

Plugged everything back in a couple hours ago and the skimmer has pulled out some pretty nasty crud since then. Now i'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
