The Dead Sea

Incremental progress is being made! The dead material is all in the tank now - the sand and rocks are set up how I want them to be, and it's actually starting to look like an aquarium, rather than a glass box...

You can see that I changed the angle of the stand supporting the large flat plate in the middle of the tank. I thought it was too beautiful a piece of rock to be mostly-hidden by nature of being too high up and horizontal. The slight inclination to the front shows off the piece much better, and I'll still be able to attach corals etc. to it later on...

Maybe it's just me, but the rock structure on the right looks like a duck, with possible a duckling (or pigeon) sitting just below and to the left of it. Perhaps I'm just bird-brained! Having said that, the one on the left looks a bit like a Scottie dog, so maybe the rocks are just like clouds - you see whatever your brain tries to fit to match the abstract shapes...

The next step is to finish off the plumbing at the top of the tank (the lower plumbing is all done now) and start to add water! Before the water can be added, though, I need to get the LitreMeter working so it can pump the NSW from the storage tanks, so 3 more tasks and the dead sea will be ready to start cycling.

Once the water is in place, the plan is to get some live sand and live rock from [URL="http://www.liverocknreef.com/liverock/index.php?l=product_detail&p=7920"]liverocknreef[/URL]. The experiences forum seem to be mostly good (one bad story) for these guys, so hopefully that'll all go well. I'm not going to be getting *too* much more rock / sand. I kind of like the open space in the aquarium...
