Rocks turned green since my last update. This week I started seeing some Coraline Algae growth(specks of purple/pink started appearing on top of the green rock surface and power head)

oh I see. did you have them custom-made for this specific tank? I brought the exact AIO about a month now, and the lids I search for, mainly have to "custom" order
It comes in a DIY kit. you will have to build it yourself from the kit. The kit comes in a different sizes. you can get the smallest one which makes a 24"x24" cover at max, which is enough for this tank

looks amazing man, very natural.. been following this build for ideas.... may I see what your media basket looks like? I wanted to do a cheato refugium but have no clue where to start...My AIO compartments is very basic haha

If your jebao powerhead is placed in the back, wouldn't the outer magnet get rusted?

I have a picture of the media basket in earlier posts.
I've since then removed the Chaeto refugium, I think it was the source of my cyano problem. Initially the Chaeto was growing well. Then after I harvested it a few times, the remaining started to have die-off, and was polluting the tank. After removing the Chaeto the Cyano started going away. I think Chaeto does not work well in a AIO, since there is not sufficient room for it to tumble have have health growth.

Now I only have filter floss, followed by filter media. I still run the Chaeto light as the light+filter floss kinda acts like algae scrubber, and algae is getting removed every time I throw away old floss. I will post another picture of the basket next time I clean it.

Good point about the Jebao powerhead. I placed it on the back for aesthetics, but I never thought about possibility of rust. Since you mentioned it I checked the powerhead, the magnet itself is coated with a plastic coating, and it's further covered by the rubber housing. No rust so far.

ok thank you, yeah, I was going back and forth with either a fuge or a skimmer in that compartment, but now, prob in no rush

I have the same model powerhead, but it's on the side.. since there's no issue with rust on yours, I'm going to relocate it to the back, which looks way better
