    I like your setup. Is that a reactor that it goes to then flows back to the refugium back into the return flow section? If so what kind of reactor. I like that setup so much better than mine. I would totally redo, my reactor leaks and this looks like you can disconnect easier than what I can do in the refugium.

    Glad you liked it Sith! and as i said thank you very much for the material list. I placed a UV sterilizer on the outside of the refugium so i don't have to worry about the UV sterilizer killing most of the Pods.

    Hey bud how’s the tank? I’m having some cloudy water problems and need a UV sterilizer. What brand do you use? Maybe some better pictures as well? Thanks

    At what stage of your build did you start running the UV Sterilizer? The reason I ask is I have an EXTREMELY bad red slime problem and was wondering if UV would help.
