    We will probably shoot around 1-2 or just barely detectable. This tank is going to be fed just as much as the 300 gallon coral tanks so as long as it can process it all and stay on the low range we'll be happy.

    Awesome addition to the store. Can't wait to see what sps you end up adding there.
    As far as filter are you only going to be running the skimmer? Or is there something else or dosing something?

    For the time being we're going to be sticking to the skimmer. If anything comes up we will consider other means of nutrient export/ fancy shmancy stuff haha
    Aside from that we're putting a calcium reactor on it and letting the corals do their thing :)
