Sunrise on the Reef! I sold my Innovative Marine 20 Peninsula, and got cash plus trade for this huge IM full-size media reactor. This was built for the massive SR120 AIO.
Fits in the return chamber. Not sure if I should throw in bioballs / carbon bag in it and get it running. Would there be any benefit vs just having the bags floating in the chambers?
As far as the skimmer it’s still breaking in, trying to get the darkest skim possible. A lot of people say this Skimmer runs wet, and AIO skimmers aren’t that great. I’ll give it a few weeks. If I’m not satisfied I may just sell it and use chemipure/GFO/Purigen in the reactor as needed. At the moment everything looks good, I basically did a 50% water change during the tank transfer. will do a water test over the weekend.
Spent some time today doing my best impression of “cable management”
Not impressive but at least there’s nothing on the ground and it’s relatively easy for me to remove any piece of equipment if necessary.
also setup my Jebao doser. I’m dosing Seachem Fusion two part. And finally setup my battery backup for the return pump.
QUESTION, does anybody know if the charger should be plugged in to the battery backup all the time? Or just charge it fully then remove charger? The model is a Coral Box battery backup but I can’t find info online and the instructions included were garbage.
