    Is the FijiPink for your display? what you going to put in the sump?

    Some stuff to do while you wait for the DT drilling.
    1) Wash the skimmer with vinigar, make some RO/vinigar mix and run the skimmer in it to get rid of factory oil and dirt.
    2) Wash the sand you going to put in the DT and sump - wash it good otherwise all the junc settles allover your sump's equipment.
