In the process of building a new sump, will look very close to the trigger sumps. I will be adding a new return pump, the reef octopus various-6 and a kessil halo II H380 led grow light, and an Avast spyglass reactor with high capacity GFO. Coming soon..........

Great pictures you have here and thanks for sharing them. Very nice system.

And I love the pink/purple lighting in the sump, it’s much better than boring white/yellow LED that I have!
