Nice build! Congrats on 365!Quick update for 365...
I put the skimmer back online, I think the GHA started when I turned off the skimmer before I went away for a week in early April. Last weekend I tore into the tank because the GHA was starting to take over the lower rocks and I ended up removing a large piece from the left side.
The other problem I was having was with the nano overflow. I found it overflowing the tank one time, luckily it was just barely going over the top. I think it had something to do with the air trapped in the emergency OF pipe that was submerged in the sump water. Idk. But I learned that I wasnt using the Herbie style OF correctly and I'm working on plumbing it properly now, just got a gate valve yesterday to control the siphon OF. Right now it's working but it's surging like crazy and really really loud.
Plans for this weekend are installing the gate valve, and mounting all of the corals I had to cut off the rock I removed. Plus rearrange the rocks a bit.
At any rate here are a few pics I just took.
