Took a year, but Im back. I think im done cycling, but I dont have ammonia test kit. I got two new eheim 75 watt heaters (they're pretty nice), a small reef octopus media reactor with vertex rox .8 carbon (that stuff is rediculously small and barely works in the reactor), 12 oz. chemi pure elite (doesnt fit in the reactor, so its just in the return section of sump), a ball valve to throttle back the return pump, and a gate valve to use the herbie method. I think that's everything new, glad to be back

Oh yea I ditched the deep sand bed. I like them but the oolitic is too hard to vacuum. Right now its bare bottom but ill probably add some fiji pink or some thing that dont easily vacuum up.

Ita alright to vacuum the top layer. If you got enough flow down there to keep it clean then its just gonna blow all over the place. It becomes a real pain in the ***.
