Dude , the tank already looks superb.
I’m thinking of moving in it of benepetit to just reef roids. I might have missed it , what are you feeding the shrimps ?
Those two bed encrusting will meet soon and the cyphsatrea will win over the monti (?? Green yellow one ) . Create a rock or bench like thing , shadow is the best separator
I have just setup the little brother to this tank, the 3.8. I am loving it so far!
I see that you were able to fit the Sicce 1.0 in. I was hesitant to order it until I saw this build and that you have had success with it.
However, after reading about you having hassles with salinity due to the overflow design I’m on the fence about it again.
I really like your media tray and the custom plug. If you or anyone that sees this post has a 3D printer and wanted to make some cash I would be willing to pay for you to print one out and mail it here. DM me.
Nice. I wound up buying the InTank media basket for the first chamber found here:
I would still like to get something slightly springy to plug the bottom hole you have had issues with. Something like a runner O-Ring to really plug the hole. Or a rubber “cork” that would plug in there and stay.
I am tempted to add another smallish tank behind the DT with a HOB an overflow and small pump so that we can add a skimmer and refugium and just have a little more real estate for doodads and gadgets. The 2” depth of the filter chamber is certainly a challenge to work with.
Good luck with your tank and thanks for your insight! Hope you don’t have to get rid of it, but I understand if you do
