Yeah it is! It reduces the splashing too, I hate the salt creep. And machine washable!

I'm out of town right now for school and my father is watching the tank. Ill have test thurs/fri for you.

Enters the filter sock first, than goes though the baffles for air bubbles, my fuge is there with about 10-15 lbs LR, than into the return. My return line had a T that goes up to the tank and to my skimmer that is a HOBlocated in the first section with my filter sock. So my skimmer recirculates the water in my sump. Flow through my skimmer is about equal or little more than half of what comes out in my display

Little update for everyone.

With a new filter sock vs my DIY that was old and had holes, readjusting my skimmer- seemed to take care of the problem.

Only down side is now my Mushroom Coral have all either detached from the rocks or just shrivels to almost nothing!! They were doing great a few weeks ago and recently it's been terrible!

Calcium is at 400

All tests are good too

What's your alkalinity at? The mushrooms detaching indicates something is amiss IMO.

^This plus what's your salt level and temp? Just to rule it out.
