    Twin 55g Sump copy.jpg
    I was worried that the photo might be too small but it won't allow me to send a larger (full size one)

    Here are more things I've done so far.

    Adding a macroalgae reactor. Added about 150lbs of premium Fiji live rocks to help cycle the sump. Will get the dividers going once I've transferred some of the rocks from the top 55g sump into the main display.

    It will have about 300lbs of live rock total. 150lbs of sand, GFO, BIO Pellet reactor, refuguim, and will invest into Triton system.

    Just waiting for the system to cycle, so that when the tank gets here it's ready. Hopefully it arrives this week. Been waiting for months!!!

    So you still want/need chaeto? I'm going to the Christmas party so I can bring it down then if you want.

    Yes please. I replied via message but I have booked a skiing trip this weekend and cannot make the Christmas party. I can stop by tomorrow if needed. Thank you so much.

    "SKIMZ Macroalgae Reactor"

    Just wanted to share this amazing in sump macroalgae reactor.

    Finally set it up in the sump last night and just checked the difference overnight.

    I was sceptical at first but I'm glad to see actual results. Side by side before and after nitrate tests.

    That's pretty impressive for just starting it up, are you running it 24/7 with lighting? I'm going to assume you no longer need any chaeto as it looks like you got some.

    I'm running it 24/7 right now. I'm allowing the chaeto to grow. I think what I have is enough chaeto wise. Thank you.

    Here's some update. Finally got the tank up and running. Upgraded my lights and boosted them some more with Mr. Doyle's special LEDs. Really excited on the progress and where this tank is going.

    Still in need of some chaeto if you're trimming some anytime soon. Making the bottom half a refuguim.

    Update on the sump and latest tank pic.

    Thank you Joe the pods, chaeto, and red algae. Improved progress on the refiguim.

    Thanks Jimmy for the CUC and livestock. Also, if you want a great deal on the tank and accessories, contact Jimmy or PIDAS. Always with great deals.

    Wanted to get you guy's thoughts on monitoring system. I know some stuff works better than other but, what is the most consistent and reliable.

    Also, couldn't do any of these if it wasn't for Mr. Doyle himself. Always giving better ideas and custom work. Thank you for everything as always.

    Wanted to add parameter and system monitoring, so let me know your experiences so I can narrow down my choices.
