    I have completed the plumbing and freshwater test,Im happy to report no leaks.Tomorrow I will add salt.I have decided to use old dried up live from my previous setups and only buy a few kgs to seed.My last cube had macroalgae that came on fresh liverock and took over the cube.


    Here is a pic of my previous cube.Sorry for the angle of the pic.
