Washing the screen after cutting a larger notch for the two gyre cords:

That's a significant amount of flow you have going on in there. Are you having any issues with your sand bed getting blown around?

Surprisingly no sand is getting blown around. I suppose the flow is coming from that far end of the tank at near to the surface so the gyre is losing force near the sand bed on the opposite end. But I'll see how it works out today.

Just felt an earthquake here in southern California. "Small" 4.5 centered near Riverside. We're closer to the coast but still felt the jolt. Always worried about aquariums in a big one. There's like nothing you can do except hope the aquarium build is strong enough to withstand the shaking. :grimacing-face:

Routine RO/DI station maintenance. Replacing the PRO series Cation DI resin and PRO Series Mixed Bed DI resin --- both color changing. Pro Series Anion resin is exhausted but everyone seems out of stock lately.
