    What light brackets are those? They look great. Did you mount directly onto back of stand? I'm thinking of getting the same light mounts if you wouldn't mind sharing the website link to order them.

    They are the flex mount system from GHL that go with the Mitras LED's:

    Having a slight issue with the flow from the return pump clearing the glass at the front, but it's not too bad. I have 4 MP40's on there running constant at 50% right now and things aren't too bad at all.

    Cool build. As for the sand problem there is a company that makes fittings to T off of the reefers return and it also adapts it to lock line fittings the website is https://vividcreativeaquatics.com/
    hope this helps :)

    Wonder how much of that is courtesy of Ozone. ORP at 350 now, it's climbed nicely over the last 48 hours and the tank is definitely clearing with it!

    It arrived yesterday, put it in - waiting to see the impact, but appears to have nicely stopped the issue! Thanks to you @The new fish on the block
