    Yup that does seem to be the downfall with the aquafuge so I will be doing something to combat that issue also, but it is working great on the 20. Thank you for the info on the xf230's also!:)

    I also used tape to black mine out. I had some of the metallic adhesive duct tape (not the grey stuff, the actual metal HVAC tape) that worked great to send light back into the fuge.

    UPDATE ON THE 20
    The 20 is coming along. It’s going through the cycle process now into it’s third week. Had a little Diatoms breakout in the aqua fuge 2 all over the chaeto. I’m going to try and clean it in new salt water the same salinity as the tank to see if I can save it. Time will tell on that. I’ll post a pic later of the chaeto.
    I tested the water to see how the cycle is going.

    Temp 78.1
    Salinity 1.025
    PH 8.2
    NH3/NH4 0.2
    NO2 0.5
    NO3 5
    KH 8.5
    CA 320

    That’s about it for now.

    I actually ordered some of this too... Hopefully it works. Not super expensive if it doesn't, but still.
    People seem to be getting lots of green (hopefully coralline).

    Indeed we will do that. I followed the instructions to a tee. All my parmiters were spot on with the instructions. I’m excited to see how well this works. I will do it again with the 75 when it’s set up.
