Because of a small leak I redid the return to hard pipe. No leaks and I managed to make it just as quiet.

You had to go and post a picture of that sump. Already had tank envy, now it's sump envy too!
Thanks alot.

It is a nice build so far, you should be proud.

its weird, but having a cool looking well planned sump makes me keep the sump area neater and cleaner which results in fewer reefing mistakes

Thanks man. I'm trying to keep things tidy on this one.
The BK really has helped w my concern of low ph. It was within range but low IMO. Since adding it my ph has been a LOT more comfortable, which is probably a sign other things are stable too


So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Thanks guys. Reef encouragement is in short supply these days haha.
I think things are stabilizing after the sump / skimmer swap out. There was a while there where a few things were askew, but they have leveled out again.
I'll be needing to find some more decedent sized pukani dry rock soon so I can attach more corals.
I'm kind of out of room now (taking any growth into consideration).
