Do you think that I should start dosing Iron in the tank? I was also considering using a mud substrate instead of the live sand that I have been using. In the next couple of weeks, I will most likely be setting up a new sump and thought that it would be a good time to start off making some adjustments during this time. I heard that mud substrates bind phoshates and naturally help keep iron levels up. Do you think that putting the skimmer chamber in the new sump after the refuge would be a good idea? Your thoughts and ideas are most appreciated? Thanks........

I would test first. Check out what this says about dosing iron, among other things- http://www.reefkeeping.com/issues/2004-05/rhf/index.php

I would put it before the fuge. IMO that would be better b/c then you have less DOC's getting into the rock, LS, and/or mud in the fuge. Your skimmer will perform best when getting surface water directly from the tank, before anything else filters it. I run my sump w/ the skimmer before the fuge, and many pictures I've seen of sumps are set up the same way. I've never heard of it being an issue. HTH
