I like the rock work and the way it is set up. That is exactly what I want to do in my 90.

Yea, doesn’t take anything away from the length of the tank. It almost sits like a widened horseshoe in my tank with some open sandbed in the middle. I still have lots of room for corals.

I dont know about your unit but the one I have recommended after disinfecting it to run it for 24 hours before using water from it.

Well I dumped the first 10 gallons it made, and used the next 5 already in my tank. I have heard nothing about disinfecting it before and therefore did no such thing. How would you disinfect it? Should I be worried ?
