Hey team,

I'm finally getting my shiny new 220.6 up and running. It is full of RO/DI at this point, testing out the pump and such, trying to make sure I'm ready for salt and rock and cycling.

One thing I notice is that the water overflowing from the refugium compartment to the skimmer chamber makes a lot of noise. Has anyone worked out a way to silence it? I am currently running with the doors off to make setup easier but I expect it will still be noisy with the doors back on.

Thanks!

It’s actually one of the things I dislike the most about this tank. What I’ve done is raise the divider slightly so that some water is going under and through the teeth. It makes a big difference.
