Thanks!Those are like flashlights they’re so bright! Are they held hostage in a bin in your frag tank?

Oh yes, and that isn't the final shelf, just something to hold the pumps up while I line up the return plumbing. I want to do something independent of the stand so the vibration of the pumps isn't amplified. With the 5 holes at the bottom of my tank I am going to do a drip tray and flood alarm and I might enhance it with a pump and a water sensor so if any water leaks I can hopefully pump it to a drain. The holes are close enough to each other that I should be able to fit the pumps and a in case of emergency leak collection within the footprint of the frame, I am going to have the sump somewhere else obviously since it won't fitTell me those pumps are going to be in some kind of a water tight bin or something. Please.
Yes that’s my plan. That way I don’t need to worry about blowing sand around with the heavy flow, or risk getting sand in the pumps. I might use coral rubble like they did in the big display at Neptune, but just a minimal covering to allow coral to grow on yet still be removable. I have some rubble in the back corner of my current tank for mushrooms and I think that would look better than just the bare grey bottom. But that can be a detritus trap so I might just leave it bare and try to grow coral on the bottomI like that you’re going closed loop. Gonna Be bare bottom?
I would do like a 1/2 gal or a gal water change with just fresh water. Sounds like you figured this out already.Water change didn’t drop the salinity very much which makes sense because I didn’t mix the new water at that low of a salinity and it was 5 gal which is roughly 12%. I am now slowly removing salt water and letting the ATO replace it with freshwater. I’ve dropped about .4ppt in the past 30 min and will probably continue at a slower rate until I get the salinity is back closer to 35ppt
salinity is down to 35.5 now, I just have been pulling a few cups of salt out and letting the ATO do its thing every 20 minutes or so for the past 3 hours.I would do like a 1/2 gal or a gal water change with just fresh water. Sounds like you figured this out already.
Did you mean .9 or .09 phosphate? Is it a units thing I’m not getting cause of you ulr checker?
That trachy is dope. Take care of it, its nice specimen.I tried out the macro lens from the polyp lab lens kit and got some neat shots! The torch and Goni always look unique with the flow all off. The rainbow trachy colors have really been popping recently I love the pink and green rim, I’m getting a little nervous about moving with it though, so if anyone is interested pm and we can make a deal.
