Looking good. I usually position the outflow in such a way that it disturbed the surface for good gas exchange

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks, I'm not sure of the flow though. Sure doesn't seem to be that much.

That looks great and dont stress the flow just yet as you'll be moving things around for a bit

I just looked again, I can see it too. Though you can tell it was not intentional. I just moved the rock out of the way so I could get to the back glass for installing the filter.

Yes I don't see why not. Do some pwc's to bring it down. What's your salinity?

So, after I redo the rock, what's next?

I think I still need a quarantine tank; a refugium; a protein skimmer; and a refractometer. I think the canister takes care of the sump part for now.

Can I set up a tank just as a refugium and use it for more than one tank? Kinda like a planted aquarium but it would be a "food" generator for any and all my tanks?
