Filled my sump last night sand the tank is finally running. Now I will test tonight and see where It stands. I still have to add the sand to the tank. I plan on doing that this weekend.

Seeing a lot of brown algae on the rocks. I had to cut the light back some because I was getting green algae growing on the glass. Didn't get a chance to put my sand in yet so I will try to do that tonight.

Do you have to have the bubble trap on the return side where the pump is? My panel came loose because my pump is really strong. I as going to changvit out with a smaller pump by not sure what to do at this point. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Oh and I did my first test and the nitrates were at 5.0, kh was 214.8, calcium was 540, and salinity was 1.029. I was getting ready to add some rodi water when I noticed the panel had broke free.

I always set my bubble trap after the first chamber (filter sock and skimmer), but I'm not sure if I'm reading your question right...

No BigRed you are reading it right. I have emptied the sump twice already to glue the panel in and I really don't feel like doing that a third time so I was just going to leave it out.

Is your skimmer sending bubbles into the DT without it?

I haven't started the skimmer yet since the tank is still cycling. Should I be running the skimmer now?

I think I am going to put the panel back in and change the pump out to a smaller flow one.
