    I started filling my fuges up tonight with RO water.  Gonna take awhile for the system to put out 200 gallons.  I am going to put some rubble, sand, & cheato in there to get it cycling once it gets up to temp.
    Over the next couple of weeks I am going to try & get the rock work done & start filling the tanks with water.

    What an exciting and frustrating time. Finally water is in the tank, but now hurry up and wait for a cycle and to stabilize parameters.
    Good luck!

    If you need some frags to get your tanks going again just let me know.

    I can't wait to see your new setup once it's up and running.

    I have enough for 1 tank, I orderd 80 lbs of dry stuff so hopefully that will be enough for the second tank.

    Thx JB I will probably take you up on that once things are stable & running good. I am taking this very slow so I
    dont have to fight problems down the road.
