I have two MarsAqua 300 watt l.e.d. over my 7ft x 2ft x 2ft aquarium. I was getting algae growth and read somewhere that red light helps algae grow. So I replaced all of the reds with 10,000 Kelvin. The fixture on the left I also replaced 2 of the yellow white l.e.d.s with ultra violet or UV...
Yes it does ramp up slowly. It isn't a big deal because I designed the sump to house it separately and it can only pull so much. It would just be nice if it went back to the original set speed. It just ends up putting a lot of air bubbles in the display tank.
Well I have resized the walls in the sump. I also added a break of flow in the refugium to change the flow pattern. Now just waiting 48+ hours for the silicone to cure. Thank you everyone for all of the wisdom and story's. Ya'll are great.
Bicolor angel, coral beauty, flame angel are all very similar. Same body different colors. I love the look of all three. My flame angel mostly picked at live rock, while the bicolor picked at everything.
Only about a gallon comes back when the pump is shut off. As of now the ball valves are shut because I know it will overflow when the pump is off. The bulkheads are my concern because they gravity feed.
Yes. I need something to stop the gravity feed from the bulkheads if for some reason the return pump stops returning. I have ball valves but that only works if I'm there in person. If I'm asleep or at work I'm screwed.
