Just building out a new RedSea 650 Max. Have to say I'm impressed with some of the thought that went into RedSea's thoughts in running wires for the LED's and pumps. It was just00 filled the other day and now working through the mixing station and auto top off. Capital Aquarium has been a great deal of help in this process and amazing at getting people together to help move build the stand, etc and move it into the house on an evening we were supposed to get bad thunderstorms. I'll post pictures once everything is completed and operational. Once things are settled in, I'll add some pictures to share. Any advice - more than welcome! Apex, Trident, MP40, optical sensors.

I’ve been busy! Mixing station is up and operational. ATO is up and working with my DOS to perform 3 gallon daily water changes. Running off my mixing station that gives me the ability to be gone for up to ten days and know the water is good. Red Sea dosers handling Alk, Calcium, Mg, reef energy and algae control. Just adjusting my MP40s and tweaking other pieces. If I could only find a Kole tang I think I would be happy for a while. Lol

Based on recommendations to mitigate Phosphates - I put in a Nyos Torq 2 for GFO and added charcoal as well. Tank parameters are looking GREAT! Crystal clear water, Alk is down to 9.8, Calc is still high at 576, but has started to slowly drop from the 590 a week ago. Mg is at 1264 , everything else is where you would want it to be. fish are happy, corals are happy and I'm enjoying things more than I was.
