    Ah gotcha, sorry looked back to the first few posts to see if it was mentioned there, should have just word searched the whole post.

    Your tank looks great! I like the many colorful anemones.

    Thanks! I finally got around to fixing the doors and mounting them. The thought of an open sump was quickly gone after a few nights of intense red lighting spilling out and ruining my display view.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] 2 weeks in and all going well. I get my UV sterilizer on Tuesday and I’ll post some updates on how that goes.

    [​IMG] Well it is in. Currently running it at about 175gph and will clean up the plumbing and hard pipe the unit eventually.

    Looks dialed-in! (Can't wait to get to that stage!)

    [​IMG] The UV certainly polished the water and definitely reduced the amount of algae on the glass so that’s a plus.

    Beautiful set up! Curious, where there specific issues you were hoping to address with the UV? I picked one up recently but haven’t gotten around to setting it up. I get some nuisance algae every couple months and my dinos come and go so I was hoping to address those but whenever I have the time to get UV going, they tend to disappear! :)

    My tank got ich and no way am I breaking it down so I went with every possible approach to ich management I could and a UV is at the top of that list

    Just hit the 2 month mark and aside from a little ich outbreak a month ago that’s now under control things are going smoothly with this build. Skimmer/refugium and 15%wc weekly is keeping everything stable and I’m stoked at the ease of maintenance with a larger reef compared to my nanos which always swung up and down a bit driving me insane.

    IMG_1200.JPG just upgraded my 2 jebao pp-4s to the new jebao slw-20 and man are these things way better. The flow pattern is almost 3x as wide and the pivot adjustment is far superior to the old style. Not a bad deal for 100$ each.
