New addition. GHL Fan (version with 2 fans) installed onto my Aquatic Life Hybrid fixture. Turns on when temp gets high, turns off when temp is normal.

Been thinking about adding a fan myself. How quickly are the GHL fans bringing down the temperature?
Just installed it this evening. No need for them to click on yet, but will find out tomorrow. Will have to see if the height above the tank is going to be an issue or not. Or if I need to install them lower. I like having them up on the fixture instead of the tank. I could point them straight down if I need to as well.

Here is today's results compared to previous days. Clearly the fans help keep the tank more consistent during the day.

Currently using a filter cup with filter floss. Using a small bag of chemipure elite in the return section.
you dont find filter floss is more work it is in when i tried 3D print couldnt go long without overslowing, Would love if someone made roller matt, But great looking tank cant wait to see it grow out.

I change out the filter floss every few days. What filter cup are you using? Mine hasn't overflowed yet.

Some of my coral are starting to get some good growth going.

Looking great mate, How do you find Trident no leaks with being below tank?

Yeah i have printed the smaller one and the larger one, i try something else other then filter floss, I also have a Hang on Algae scrubber will be interesting how it goes, At moment i only have Filter Sock Tunze 9001 and i Dose AFR and few others for NO3 and po4 reduction, My tank is great just sick of cleaning sock every day but keeps water smick.

Trident has worked pretty well. Have not run into leaks yet thank goodness.

How's the algae scrubber? Which one are you using?

I also dose AFR, but my corals are starting to grow at a faster rate I have been chasing the dosage amount. I usually have to supplement with some Alk, but it is getting more and more dialed in. I am using NP Bacto Balance with Microbacter7 for nutrient addition/control.
