Are you getting different sump to get a fleece roller?
Pretty much. I’m buying just the glass tank off a pal, so I need to piece everything else together. Since I have to buy a sump, I might as well go with the sump of all sumps!?
Any other suggestions? How do you like your roller compared to clearsea?

Just added 3D printed light shades for my Ecotech Radion XR30 Pro Lights. Thanks to @chemisfun11 who printed them for me.

1) Practically Reduces all glare when looking at aquarium
2) Focuses light into aquarium giving more par and makes colors pop
3) Significantly reduces algae build up on the glass. Used to clean glass every 2 days. Now go 6 to 7 days and much faster to clean because the build up is less
4) Gradually Turned up Light Point Intensity by 15% after installing!

Peter,

If you ever have a chance, can you tell me the dimensions of the other cabinet side as well? No worries if not, you've already been so helpful! Very thankful for your build thread!
 

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