Normally not too bad. But I figure it cannot be this easy. Never used pvc cement but it's pretty straight forward. But we will see figure I'll have it fullish by this time tomorrow
You should let the pvc cement cure for 24 hours before putting any pressure on the fitting. Also make sure you rotate the fitting a bit to spread the glue around. Also mark where you want the two fittings to line up. So dry for it and mark it then glue and match marks.Normally not too bad. But I figure it cannot be this easy.

I agree. But it’s best and is recommended for anything under pressure. Of course our aquariums are generally less pressure anyways.24 hrs really isn’t required but if your not in a hurry it don’t hurt

Looking great!So my ammonia lost alot of strength. It took me 209 ml to reach 1.5 in tank.used up 6 ammonia test to verify. Got refugium light hung up. Added sponge filter under skimmer to raise it up. Have a sweet floral smell was worried about it but guess many others experience it also.
Ignore my cords they are a mess.
Peak brightness. Have lights set to a planned power level while cycling. Once ammonia drops to zero ordering 10 lbs live rock and will add a few Mollie to test water and be ready for algea.
The red ogo is struggling. I hear they are nutrients hogs so maybe just too early. My pom pom is red and seems to be doing good. Pods all over the sand and rocks. It's exciting to see some life in there. I am going to look at Petco for some hermits maybe a few snails. Then PetSmart to look for a trio of mollies to put in there. They can ride the waves for a bit to help build nutrients.Red algae is tough to keep long term honestly.
mid really be curious to see how you do keeping algae and if you find it worth the effort. I’ve always largely thought it’s just easier to buy sheets maybe not as fun. I truly wish you the best of luck with growing the algae as I think saltwater algae is really cool looking.
Those are some neat colored clowns.
Yes black snowflakes. They are definitely interesting to watch. Amazing how calm the male is and the female is a nut job.Looking great mate.
What type of Goby is that? I might be getting one similar (well it looks similar). Do you know if that's a 'sand spitter' as I'm going to avoid them as I really don't want to be continuously brushing sand off my sand bed corals and rocks.

I'm pretty sure it's a diamond watchman goby. I was hoping for a sand sifters but pretty sure it isn't. It found a spot under a rock and just sits there all day and night.
So here goes to planning. Royal Gramma has a spot on his tail. Could be a injury since he likes to hide inside of the rock. Keep up with feeding well. Live brine quality flake and frozen mysis. Will look out for more spots. Should've waited to qt but too late now
That sucks they spit them out. Easy live meal. I feed my brine a couple drops of phytoplankton make sure nutritional.
First snail rescue this morning. Seen it on my overflow box. Thought I could get him down. Nope he went down the main drain clogged on 5he gate valve. Had to open it up and get him to fall down. Then had to disassemble both main drains to get in their compartment. There went my 30 minutes of watching this am.
So far so good with the royal Gramma. Still one spot and eating so fingers crossed. Already know I am managing the disease.
Lastly for the morning I am thinking about starting a white worms in a container to versify the food options and slowly work flakes down. Even though the flakes are quality flakes I want to get to more live food. Will also start collecting vitamins and make my own foods.
