I'm not sure how much room you have, but I measured 7 3/4" from light to water surface on mine.
Pretty sure BRS hung it eight inches off the water.
That's a little snug but but I think it'll work, thanx guys. Plus after the swap I'll sell my current sump and skimmer. Should all but pay for the no risk light.
Do you think it would be good to put a surpent star and a couple of peppermint shrimp in the fuge?
As always, my Sunday morning just wouldn't be complete without an update video from BRS and a cup of coffee. I look forward to following these results.
So cool to have a trident prototype...
OK, we need a Triton BRS160 update !!
Another Great Vid from @Bulk Reef Supply but i think I will stay with the old school style sump, Skimmer, Refuge Incl Miracle Mud and Cheato. I have been running this set up for over 15 years!
You know what they say, if it's not broke don't fix it. My parameters are stable as can be!

Question on lighting the macro. Should it only be lit from the top? You said that there should be some die off, I assume that's from the unlit part underneath. I have a set of Santa Monica filtration's gem 5 lights and I'm currently lighting from 2 sides and top and bottom tup bold up my macro. Should I only concentrate on top lighting?
I would imagine you could light multiple sides of the refugium without an issue. We haven't tried/tested it specifically here at BRS, but would be interesting to hear about your findings and experiences if you opted to light multiple sides!
can you use the triton method with a CA reactor? if so what bottles would be needed
You can mix and match your method however you choose, however it wouldn't be the triton method. It would be your method supplemented with triton elements. You certainly could do it that way. The core bottles that you chose to use would be totally dependent on fuge size and the maturity of the tank more then anything. Not the CA reactor.
As @Scott.h mentions, I don't suppose you could consider it the Triton Method when adding other approaches to Alk/Ca supplementation. You could add a Ca reactor along with the major, minor and trace elements from the Triton bottles and it would probably save quite a bit on the total dosage.
Personally I would opt for one or the other, unless I had a very large system with a major demand for major elements where it may be more cost effective to use both. Or I would use their ICP/OES test along with minor elements along with a Ca reactor and a refugium!
Check out these two Triton videos that may help to clarify some differences between some of the options they offer. I think if you're set on a Ca Reactor, the first video should be right up your alley.

Looking forward to the next tank update - when do you expect this to happen? I’m just about to start cycling a new tank and want to use Triton, but would like to see how you’re getting on first. Cheers Chris
I would expect that one is due later this month or early next month!
Awesome - can’t come soon enough
I’m hoping that when @randyBRS says we can expect an update later this month he means this Friday!! I cant take the suspense! I’m doing an entirely new tank build and just received the trigger systems triton 44 from Brs this past week. Cheers!
@randyBRS, I just want to take the opportunity to thank you and the BRS Team for all your Tech Videos as a noob to this sport they have been extremely helpful. The BRS160 series has been my Aquarium Build Bible if you will and the starting point for much of my research. I am currently building a 200g setup that will be a mixed Reef, I am going to utilize the Triton Method from the start. I am also going to leverage the Technology available with an Apex controller and Kessil Lighting. I am having a custom sump built to maximize Fuge volume as well.
Keep up the great work and know you have made a customer for life with me.
