      Awesome setup. What's that above the light fixture?

      Was curious, is that enough rock?

      It really depends on how effective his biological, mechanical filtration and maintenance is vs. his bioload. For example, I have less rock, a large bioload and just until recently only ran an algae turf scrubber on my system. I haven’t done a water change in eons. My nitrates wouldn’t rise above 2.5 ppm no matter what I did within reason, including feeding so much throughout the day that my fish refused to eat. The reality is even trace nitrates are ok as long as your coral is doing fine and there’s enough food for them in the water column. Also, I only added a small skimmer for increased gas exchange to lower my ph from 8.6 (Yes, I recalibrated my probes and used multiple test kits).

      Correct. I’ve also done research on this marinepure bio filter. This media offers more surface area then the actual rock in the display. Pretty incredible what it is capable of. I also plan on running some sort a huge fuge along with carbon and GFO reactors. The goal is for an ULN & ULM set up. Or in another words the triton method

      This light fixture is made by aquatic life. It’s a 4 x 48“ T5. With built in brackets to run all major brands of LEDs on the market.
