They are both running great and silent at full blast on Else Mode. Once I have corals in the tank I’ll let you know if there is enough flow.

It’s been almost a month now since my last post. I want to show what the tank is looking like. I’ve added a Jebao spc-70 pump and a jebao 4 doser. Dosing mag, strontium and carbocalcium all from my fav tropic marin. I’ve also have done 20gal water change weekly just to avoid the ugly tank syndrome and will continue water changes weekly until I think tank is ready. I use tropic Marin salt as well. Here is a video of the tank.
