    [MENTION=18127]StarfishEnterprise[/MENTION] - hoping to get that tall piece into the tank today to complete the scape!

    Mrs seems ok with Cockfields Saturday morning so I'll pop the cube in the car
    [MENTION=20031]nemo85[/MENTION] I'll be there around 10/10:30 if you can make it - I'll send you a text aswell incase you don't read this!

    Not sure mark will have my controller in by the weekend :( however guess I could pickup the Mp10 talking of which - would it be worth setting it lower down in the tank compared to the other? Ie my current is at 8" from the surface drop the other at 10"? And run both on reef crest or such?

    Can drop the mp10 as much as you want mate. Just watch for picking up sand. I would be tempted to put one on the back wall say 2/3 way down and then one from side say 1/3 down. Instead of having both opposite this varient may give more chaotic flow and would be my preference.

    Im def there saturday now dude. Got some other business to attend while im there.

    I'd planned both on the back wall mate! No cables dangling down the sides on a rimless/braceless tank!

    I'll be there between 10/10:30 Saturday mate get a coffee etc! (Let the little un loose on the Thomas ride!) :lol:

    So a couple of tests 34.5ppt this should reach 35 overnight Kh 7.3 on a salifert test - still a little low for my liking.. Fair way up from the 5.something tho!
    Calcium 440
    Mag 1350
    Phos between 0 and 0.03 on the salifert test
    Ammonia.. 0
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 0

    I guess everything's in order..

    Certainly was mate, no way I was going to take the risk of 2 or 3 big changes in a shorter period of time

    Everything seems settled still.. One or 2 more changes and I suspect the kh will have caught up to where the RSCP is
