    Thanks, ja next step will be more rock, just waiting for a decent shipment,(only 1 LFS stocking marines in PE) and a 10000k mh. For now a boyo skimmer is the one working for me.

    Nicely done man. Nice and neat electrical work there. Just some advice on a couple of things: Those Hydrometers aren't the best(not very accurate, they get stuck) so maybe look at getting a Refractometer. I don't know the skimmer you have running there but the it doesn't look like it's pulling in enough air. What pump have you got running on it? And lastly, it might be a good idea to cover up those balasts on the left. You probably already did that and just took it off for the photo, but when working down there you don't want to bump your elbow or hand against it. :p

    Nicely done!
