What has been the most important thing you have done to keep your slice of the ocean stable? I'd have to say incorporating an ATO is the absolute best thing possible and then moving on from there.

For me it has been strict weekly water changes and testing. haven't gotten an ATO yet (I'm working from home so its easy to top off every day) but, it would make life easier!

What percentage are you changing weekly and how long does it take?

For my freshwater tanks, it was streamlining them down as much as possible. If you have as little tech as possible there’s the fewest things that can go wrong. I have 2 happy healthy unfiltered freshwater tanks and one I haven’t fed in a few weeks and all the psudomugils inside are fat

1. ATO. Tunze Osmolator.
2. Dosing pumps. Dosing BRS Soda ash and Calcium chloride through a Bubble Magus doser.
3. AWC. Using a GHL Maxi and 50 gallon brutes on casters.

What percentage do you awc, and daily or weekly?
2.5 gallons daily spread over 12 doses every 2 hours in my 125gallon DT with 36 gallon sump. So less than 2% daily taking aquascape into account.

What pumps, and what are you dosing?
I have been running the Jebao for almost 2 years on one system and the Kamoer X1 on my smaller frag tank. On my main system I dose BRS 2-part and AcroPower via the pumps and phyto manually. On the frag tank I dose Tropic Marin All-For-Reef via the pump and phyto manually.

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
