Photos of the sump, we're using a Trigger 39 Platinum and are very pleased with it. Unfortunately, we are getting low flow with the COR20 and need to figure out why (we think the pump is defective but Neptune wasn't very helpful in troubleshooting it).

I just bought the white INT 200 peninsula. Thank you for all the info in this thread. It has helped me a lot already. My tank isn't coming till November so I have time to pick out equipment now. How you liking the Maxspect 350 gyre? Have you considered putting it on the overflow side instead? I read that the outside magnet is submersible. Or do you think having it on the peninsula side is still best?

Love your scape. Those acros will look so nice once grown out.

I like the Maxspect 350 but it needs to be cleaned every month to maintain decent flow. Haven't tried it on the overflow side, it'll probably give the tank a cleaner look but we wanted to make sure we have enough flow on both sides of the tank for the acros.

Thanks! Haha we got another pack, definitely can't wait until they're grown out.

With the screen mesh that comes with the tank, does it allow any space for mounting lights? I plan to get the HMS light mount system and Hydra 64. But not sure if the HMS will work with the overflow lid and the tank mesh lid.
