Haha it’s embarrassing. Very messy wiring

But here it is :)
Thanks a lot for sharing !!!! I see you trust the Biodigest and from what I read you pay a lot of attention to your bacteria biology, similar to my philosophy ;-)

That's not a messy sump!!! Looks good actually for the job and duty this sump arrangement does for the tank.

I see you run a few sections with DSB, I was thinking to implement DSB too in my current 300, since in the past it did always an awesome job maintaining nutrients.
Had to restart my tank a few months ago after a tank disaster.
Here a recent picture of it after 8 months after the restart from scratch.

Check out my built thread one day ;-) Link is in my signature.

What happened to the original filter section with the bioballs, fleece and gravel?
Did you ditch it for the DSB's? I actually liked that chamber and have seen this method with the fleece a lot in Malaysian and Indonesian tank systems.

Haha well, used to pay more attention, but now it’s just dumping biodigest as a routine without thinking too much! My chambers are still there but it’s on e left,blocked by the door.

Would love my sump to look like this, which I did up for my brother in law’s new tank recent months!

Your FTS is fantastic!! Only 8 months and it’s impressive! Will definitely check out your thread! Thanks for the kind words :)

Hi! Thanks for compliment!

The filter section is still there, just blocked by e door of the left and hidden from the picture.

Alex - amazing tank. I just went through the whole thread. It looks like the tank continues to evolve as your passion for certain corals grows. I am very curious as to whether you still have all the clams in there and where you have them placed. I also noticed a flame angel in your tank in some of the earlier pics. Has he behaved?
