What started as a "YAY, I got my tank back up and running" thread is now a "Whats going on with my tank?" thread (which is why I decied to move it here). Anyways please scroll down for the info: For those who don't know, my 90 gal Bow front sprung a leak on me last December and heres a list of what I went through just to get my tank back up and running:[/SIZE] 12/27- I noticed my tank started leaking around 11pm so I transferred all fishes and live rock into two 30 gallon rubber maid containers. I ended up finishing around 2am 1/10- Placed an order for the replacement tank with lfs. ETA 3-4 weeks 8) 2/3- New tank finally arrived but when it came down to fitting it into the stand, it wouldn't fit... The replacement tank was too "bowed" in the front and wouldn't want to sit in the stand. (I guess I ended up giving my lfs the wrong measurements from the old tank) but they helped me out and said that they could do some modifications to my existing stand. 2/18- The lfs builder came out and modified my stand to fit the new tank. (I was worried at first but when I saw the final result I was impressed!) 2/19- Painted the back of the tank Black, did all the plumbing, and performed a leak test using regular tap water. And after 1 week of running it, I found that there were NO LEAKS! ;D 2/25- Headed out to the north shore and pick up some white sand. I was skeptical at first using beach sand cause of how dirty everyone says it is but I was impressed on how nice, clean and fine the sand was out there. When I got home I ended up putting the sand in the tank and it didn't cloud the water up even a little bit. Then I also threw in some of the live rock to get the cycle process started. Today I checked the water parameters to see where its at and everything was fine except for the Nitrate 5 ppm. Right now I think I'll wait another 2 weeks just to make sure I have no ammonia spikes before I transfer the fish back into the tank. Man, its seem like its been a long time coming but I'm glad that I'm on my way to getting things back to normal.
