uh, after such a description we want to see the tank buddy... where's the pix?90 reef. Bare bottom, 20 long sump. No skimmer. Dose vinegar and vodka (diy NoPox) with auto doser 4 times a day. Mrs wages in top off. Do very few water changes. All water passes through a diy filter made with two cheap Walmart strainers and Walmart poly for quilting. I replace the poly once a week and it’s amazing how much detritus is removed. Led lights. Clowns, purple tang, Marine beta are all 15 years old or older. Not a perfect reef, but pretty bullet proof. All I test is salinity.
