    So my planning for a SW tank is coming together slowly....

    Hopefully picking the sump up from IM tomorrow or Saturday. Now the DT has been fallow with +- 80% water for over a week and i'm getting a serious BGA/Cyano (Not reddish in colour like SW).

    Ideas on sterilising the tank before I start filling with RO? Run a strong dlution of Potassium Permangenate with the current water, rinse and rinse some more?
