    Scuzy your tank is amazing. The filtration is over the top. I wish I had a idea of understanding all that you are doing and why. It looks like something you would see at the S.F aquarium exhibit. Great job.
    It looks so good. I do not even want to show my build on either one of my new tanks. LOL

    Thanks
    I recently incorporated the following to help reduce nitrate in the future.

    [​IMG]

    Siporax , seachem matrix, marine pure ceramic balls, and marine pure ceramic 8x8x4 bricks. No more live rocks and rubles in sump. This should be plenty of surface space for denitricfying bacteria to grow.

    Beautiful tank build so far, I'm looking forward to see it get filled up and grow.

    Love the wood working. I like the idea of packing bio media in the sump to have more room in the tank.

    And TTM... when I read about it I was thinking, man that is a lot of work.

    Nice black sand, what kind is that.

    Those are the Hawaiian black live sand from carribsea. Ttm isn't that bad just need double tanks.

    I love the look but it sucks that it's magnetic. I'm debating on going with it again or go with reg color sand

    It's actually not that bad. I should do a guide for my version of Tank Transfer Method.

    It's basically two 5 gallon buckets, two heaters, PVC tubes/parts (for hiding/stress relief), one air pump, and like 10$ worth of airline tubing.

    Transfer every 72 hours. Make sure everything you used is dry to avoid cross contamination. I throw away used airline tubing.
