Thank you!

Vivid aquariums makes a RFG for the WB 20 and 25. I think it is 1/2 inch.

I am manual dosing the tank every few days. I was on ESV but switched over to Red Sea foundation, AB+, and NOpoX

I love it. I bought three for my other tanks.

I am using the innovative marine ato pump but not the sensors. I have had two fail on me in the past and dont trust them. So when the tanks are low, I just plug in the pump to fill the tank.

Cool. I own a Tunze 9001DC and plan to use it but the icecap is nice because it would allow me to use my light’s mounting arm. I had heard the icecap is not quiet but the Tunze bubbles make plenty of noise, no pump or air sucking sound but the bubbles are audible. Probably an issue with any skimmer in an AIO.

Your torch collection is awesome.

I have a Kraken lid too

I don't find the ice cap too loud, the stock WB pump was way too loud. Switched over the Sicce and it is night and day more quite.

Thank you! I can't keep any hammers alive but somehow got lucky with the torches!

The kraken lids are pricey, but so worth it! Very clean looking and with my wrasses, much needed lol.

Cant wait to see your build.

I should do a build thread. Been around a long time and never done one.

Beautiful tank! Great job! Striving to half as close as yours. I'm about 8 months in on mine and starting to accumulate some various lps. Dealing with hair algae now. Just curious, where have you been purchasing the torches? I've been using Austin Aqua Farms and Queen City Corals. How is the flame working out? Think that will be my last fish. I plan to upgrade lights like yours when things go on sale in a few weeks.

I love it! BUT… does that nem in there not make you nervous around all those torches? I’ve got a black widow in with all mine, and I poop a little every time I think it’s gonna move lol

Thank you for the kind words! Ive been very lucky with this system with no algae. The nitrates are alittle low in my system. I actually found alot of my torches from here on R2R. Good sellers, some local and some that need to ship. The flame angel has been great. I had him for years before going into this tank and he doesn’t bother a thing. Got lucky on that one lol.

Radion G5 blue is great, because the tank is long, I felt I needed to add the Reefbrite LED kit and its been great so far.

Good luck with your system I cant wait to see your progress.

Knock on wood, I haven’t had any problems. There are 5 BTA in there and I think The torches sting them and they move lol.
