Ok, I have everything plumbed and set up on my new 162 gallon in wall tank. I am about to add the substrate. I am concerned about the water line. I have a sumo, so the water line only move up or down if I open or restrict the drain coming from the overflow. I attached the wall wood trim around the tank, filled nail holes, paint, etc, and whe I have the overflow drain fully open, the water line is about 1 inch below the trim. I have to back the drain off about 30% to get the return pump to raise

The family and I took a drive down to Seattle yesterday...she went shopping for the kids, and I took Serene, my 8 year old daughter, to Salt Water City. I ahd read some good reviews on the web. When I got there, I was impressed with their coral selection. They only do saltwater, which is noce as well.
One cool thing, was they have a section where you can buy from $10, $20, $30, $40, and $50 frags tanks. This is a good way for beginners to try differnet corals w/o breaking the bank.

I am getting close to adding the salt to my new tank. I have always used Kent Salt in my FOWLR tank. What does everyone recommend? And why? I am curious also how price factors in to quality and contents.
The last thing on my mind a month ago was setting up a 162 gallon reef tank. I was actually packing for 11 days in Cancun with my wife. My low maintenance 37 gallon FOWLR tank has been running for 9 years, and I was not too concerned about leaving it for the trip.
On day three of the trip, we had our first snorkeling excursion. My wife, not being the best swimmer, had to be peeled from
