With the exception of the reactor header, I am done and about to add water to bring the tank water level back up. I do have a hand valve to shut off the reactor header, so, no rush to get it installed today. I just wanted to get the actual tank return done.

I added the bigger and FAR SEXIER return pump. Some may ask what are you talking about...LOL... Well its the truly photogenic and probably never should be hidden Abyzz A200. :eek: :cool::eek:

My Apex is going crazy with pump alarms. I will need to delete the pumps to keep this from happening. IT's a very good day. ;)

Guess what, Its up and running. I only hooked up the left return flow sensor so far, BUT, I am impressed. I am getting 450 gph at 50 percent of the Abyzz.

At 60 percent I am getting 600 Gph out of the left return. The Abyzz A200 is definitely a beast.

I had to plug back in the heaters...OPPS...to raise the tank temp back up. It only went down to 76 degrees though. I did raise my house temp to help though.

I lowered the Abyzz to 55 percent. I was turning over the tank 6x's, I want it to be around 4x's. I also hooked up the second flow sensor.

I am very close to adding a urchin to control the coraline algae. The problem is, it would likely eat the coraline on the scape and not the backwall knowing my luck, LOL!!!
