    The quality of the control box of the current eflux pump I am using isn’t great. The pump has me a little worried... I feel like it may fluctuate in flow. I bought a backup already just in case.... what are your thoughts? Mine (6011) is also loud! Has a very distinct whine at all levels...

    As you can see I’m still putting this together. The tank is dry thus far and all of my comments are on what I see as I put it together. I’m sure if your having issues the Current USA team will help you out. If I were you and had these same concerns then I would reach out to them.

    I will reach out for sure. I feel the pump itself is well built. Just curious as to your thoughts. Not a lot of user info out there at the moment.

    Your build looks great! Didn’t mean to take anything away from it.

    No offense taken . This is what reefing is all about . Sharing information, trying new things and helping each other . My intention is to always give credit where credit is due. I also make suggestions for improvements as I see them. I will definitely keep everyone informed about what I find along the way. I have made a few changes already due to personal preference etc.

    I encourage you to continue to follow my build and enjoy the interaction!

    Not that it’s part of the build but I also picked up a Cove Algae scrubber.

    The quality of the skimmer impressed me a lot and so does this scrubber. It even comes with extra replacement pads. Nice quality! Again very solid build quality!

    Interesting build! I'll be very curious how the Orbit pumps and lights do!

    At this point I can only comment on the quality of construction. So keeping that in mind I would rate it a 10 for sure. Very heavy built! I wouldn’t be scared to drop it at all. Not that I would do that but accidents do happen....



    This tank is not wet yet so as far as performance I’ll have to wait until I’ve had a chance to operate it.

    I like how the number are at the top of the air pipe. So much easier to dial the skimmer in and keep the skimmer dialer in

    I sure will! Look forward to getting the cycle going... just need sand and rock.

    I’m contemplating going BB for the first time. As far as rock I’ll be using the Aquaforest StoneFix

    The Stone Fix is the bomb. I used it wet when epoxy would not hold!!
