I’m really not too sure about how to properly update the thread so I replied. I’m about as tech savvy as a walrus, on a good day that is.

I wanted to focus this update on the lighting choice I made. I couldn’t be more pleased wit the EcoTech Marine Radion XR15 G5 Pro. The upgraded mounts are solid and the Mobius app that runs it is easy to use even for me. The lights have tremendous capabilities. Only confusion comes from the setting called disco which flashes the lights at full strength. No sure how that helps the inhabitants as it pretty much sent me into an epileptic seizure. I did quite a bit of homework on lighting systems and I’m very happy I chose EcoTechs. I will continue to run my Fluval 406 canister with established bio media to support the added life

Ok it was time to add a wave maker. I landed on a Hitop 2200, I should have went with the 1050gph. These are very powerful and seem to be excellent quality so far. There are a number of settings and speeds you can run. Pics attached.
