Wow, what a wait, 9-10 weeks. I ended up filling it with a mix of RO and tap water. Really pleased with the filter and pump, they are almost silent in the other room., still playing around with the overflow to get it to stop gurgling.
Ended up putting the Korilia 750's back on the side with the pump outlet, that puts my circulation to about 2700 gallons/hr (pump is 1200).
The Mag 18 fractioning pump is killer, extremely tiny bubbles everywhere. Plants are pearling like crazy:
Tomorrow, I change the bulbs over to the new ones, tie that java fern on the right to a rock to make it sink better, and try to quite the overflow down. Anyone know the trick for those? It's a reef octopus.
Dosing EI from the start, gonna do water changes every other day for about 2 weeks or so. Hope to start adding some livestock soon! Still have not decided on what fish to add, but I know there will be tons of shrimp.
