    I have been designing this new build for over 2 years and I am almost in ready to start hard plumbing my 1.5'' drains since I am running one of Synergy 20'' External overflow box. I am going to be running an EcoTech M1 for one return and for my other return I have selected the #ApexCOR20 for my 2nd return pump. Also, for flow inside of the 150 I bought a pair of MP40QWD's and 2 TUNZE Turbelle Nanostream 6055 Controllable pumps which will be installed in the back for any dead spots. As far as my Skimmer, I went with a Reef Octo Regal 150 and I am in the process of ordering an #TurboAquatics Tubro Algae scrubber, L-2 Model and for my Lighting, I went with a pair of @Orphek Atlantik Compact V4 (Gen 2) LED fixtures. My sump just came in Synergy. I bought one of there CL-44 sumps which the craftsmanship is out of this world! Also, Rick over Synergy build me some custom brackets for my L-2 Scrubber that will sit on top of my Sump nice and tight! I should have water flowing in my dream tank in the next few weeks!

    Very nice! Do you have the Apex EL @lbacha? How do you like your Trigger sump and running it the #Triton Method ?? I was going to go that route but decided to go a different route and run filter sock cups with one of the new L-2 REV 4 Turbo Algae Scrubbers.The sump MFG Synergy WILL be making some Slight modifications on my Synergy CL-44 sump that's currently in production. Ones I get my sump which should be in about 2-4 wks I wil be ordering one of the Turbo Scrubbers from Bud!

    For people who don't know anything about Algae scrubbers, they work unbelievable, so make sure you read this link by Bud Carlson blog, the CEO of #TurboAquatics.

    I have an apex 2016 running it all, I really like the trigger sump, it sat out in the open in my living room for a year so it needed to look good to the wife (she likes blue and I liked the bigger fuge area of the ruby so we compromised). I really didn’t even realize it was set up like the triton method until you just mentioned that. Up until last week when I added the Nuvo 25g lagoon to the system I was running without a skimmer and had the cheato in the skimmer section of the sump. Since I upgraded to about 60 gallons of water I added the skimmer to the skimmer section and needed a place for the algae (I was going to use a reactor but the 15g column added about 12 more gallons to my system so I liked the added volume). I do water changes as the triton tests are a little pricy and I’ve never had an issue with water changes.
